Brown 1654

Desert Thorn-apple in Winter. Found in Tyson Wash, Quartzsite, AZ 1-6-13. In spring and summer this will be a green sphere (still with spikes) and will have beautiful white night blooming flowers. It is part of the night shade family and poisonous.

  1. That is a Burr I wouldn’t want under my saddle blanket, even if ya did make it pretty.

  2. Fascinating and very nicely presented – the frame works nicely with the image and adds to the theme as well!

  3. This is stunning and I love that you gave it a brown frame. It really enhances the picture in this instance. By the way I love your list of techniques to try/practice… I am RIGHT there with you!

  4. Hi Judi,
    Very pretty even though it’s brown and poisonous. Have a great day!
