Theme Day: Sticky


 I think most people will think of sticky as something like humidity in the air or honey or syrup on the table.  I'm taking a different approach since I live in a part of the country with very dry air but lots of "sticky" plants.  Not sticky with sap but sticky with thorns.  As the photo above shows, they can create quite a hazard. 


Even plants with no thorns are still dangerous with their very sharp and pointed edges.


Some might think it would be a good idea to provide a warning label. 

The City Daily Photo Bloggers theme for the month of August is "Sticky".  To see other sticky situations from around the globe, click here

I have a new post on Sharon's Sojourns today.  Prince Albert gets a lot adulation.

Yes a warning sign for sure. I know from personal experience thorns can be very painful.

That is a nice sticky photo!

Ah, where would we be without warning labels? I imagine humans would be extinct by now. ;-)

That hurts just to look at it. Reminds me when I got stuck by a cholla (jumping) cactus. I still don't know how it got me....I think they really do jump.

Good interpretation.

Somehow I have never been stuck by a cactus spine. There are a couple of varieties that thrive in Florida.

That was a great choice for the theme, Sharon! I didn't do the theme for the 1st time in years as I could not think of what to do that wasn't glue or something and I have a lot going on in life right now and just couldn't come up with anything. Good one!

It's kind of funny someone put a label on that cactus. If I looked at that I think I'd be able to infer that the spines are sharp!

You just know that somewhere, someone is thinking, "why can't I touch it?"
