Lani, Deborah, Jill, Silvia, Tammy, Pam, Cathy, Agnes, SP and KK, so nice of you all to comment! I really appreciate it!

Deborah, this is a "guard tree?" Got to go look that up.

Pam, it looked like a stegasaurus (sp?) to me so prehistoric it was...That's why I shot it on it's side. #2053716

Very good shot Terry! I have one of these trees in my backyard, very spiney. I took a shot of the trunk and branch once, probably still have it. I was fasinated with the spines. You did great here. I'm in San Diego, by the way. #2054170
