It's just a weed with raindrops. Amazing how pretty things look sometimes, closeup.
This is how "the point" looked this morning, in the pasture.
Some sort of toadstool.
These just look like ordinary scrub trees, don't they?
See the thorns on the trunk ? (Click on the picture to see them better.) Those are locust trees. They're in a spot where Cliff never goes, or he'd have gotten rid of them long ago. He hates these things with a passion. Once he sees this entry, I give them no more than a week to live.
Locust thorns have been known to pierce a tractor tire. Just ask Cliff.
As you can see, the thorns get over an inch long. If you happen to get pricked with one, it leaves a wound that's very, very sore for a long time. I've often wondered if there's some sort of poison in them.
