    When a Rose thorn sticks in my thumb, it really doesn't feel like a prickle. Lol.
    Enjoyed the article @Junglekeeper.

    Douglas Justice included a bit about thorns, spines and prickles in the June 2020 in the Neighbourhood - UBC Botanical Garden blog, under Rubus bifrons (Himalayan blackberry).

    I sing "Every Rose Has Its Prickle" to the horticulture class every year.
