The Definition of Prickly

The definition of PRICKLY...

This is an interesting tree I spotted while recently visiting a farm  in the hills of St. Elizabeth.

It’s called “Prickle Yellow” and is apparently a great bird feeding tree – but I call it the definition of prickly.

It’s fascinating as the bark is covered from top to bottom in sharp “prickles”. I’m thinking that this tree must really be something special to have evolved such an effective defense mechanism.

I certainly wouldn’t want to suddenly loose my balance and fall onto it and I’m not sure how birds manage to “feed” from it but apparently they do…

    Mais cet appui n’a rien de très étonnant quand on connaît http://www.dxbiz.com/la proximité entre le site internet et le Parti pirate. Début mai, l’ancien porte-parole de Pirate Bay, Peter Sunde, s’est lancé dans les Européennes. Son programme : défense de l’Internet libre, de la transparence gouvernementale, ou encore favoriser un plus grand respect des droits individuels. Sans surprise, ce candidat avait reçu le soutien du Parti pirate Finlandais.Il portera la bannière du parti pour les élections et sera candidat à la présidence de la Commission européenne avec Amelia Andersdotter.

    @LFT I guess that might be one of the significant purposes of this tree.

    Freaky….I get a litle disturbed when I see strange surfaces like this. My friend says he use to knock off the prickles and make pipes to smoke with.
