Textured Tuesday: Thorny Issue

Actually, I went out today to find a "blue" picture
to put with this video, but to find blue and
thorns, too, was just about right, considering.

Just keep singin' the blues, guys.

Those are some serious thorns!

Hi, Meghan! Yep, the thorns seemed to average about 3 inches in length and were very sharp. I wanted to keep one, but they wouldn't break off easily, either.

Scary thorns! What the heck kind of tree is that?!

But the song is wonderful. I think I'll listen to that again.

Hi, Scout. I don't know what kind of tree it is. I hadn't seen one since I was about 12, horseback riding with a friend. I'll have to go back when it blooms, for a leaf to verify it, I guess.

I love that song, too. I first heard it almost a year ago when Martin played banjo w/that group, the Steep Canyon Rangers on Austin City Limits.

And I just love the sound of steel drums , too. What is it about their tone that makes them so pleasant to hear?
