Not quite thistles but sticky and sharp nevertheless.
A rusty nail in a 2 x 4, on top of a fence board. In the background we see a fuzzy birch tree in fall colors of yellow and green, against a deep blue sky.
Picture taken from my back yard.
Fall is upon us yet again. But it brings majestic beauty with maple leaves taking on bright colors of red, orange, green and yellow.
This picture was taken in Redmond, WA, a few years back.
