Illustration Friday - Ferocious

"It is not part of a true culture to tame tigers, any more than it is to make sheep ferocious." - Henry David Thoreau

I couldn't think of anything for this week's topic so I went into the woods, well the backyard, to channel my inner Thoreau and discovered my flower bed overgrown with carolina horsenettle a form of nightshade. It's particularly "ferocious" since it's not only poisonous but covered with thorns so very difficult to weed.
