There was given to me a thorn in the flesh..II Corinthians 12:7
I pulled some weeds today...
Around the flowers of May
When I grabbed a Devils claw,
It hooked me with its wicked thorn
And pricked my finger raw
Then looked at me with scorn..
Poetry by me, AJP
I did indeed get pricked by the terrible thorns from the Devils claw while trying to clear away the weeds and leaves around the May Flowers..It also got caught on to my clothing and I had a hard time freeing myself...but at least the flowers that I shot pictures of greeted me with smiles. Photography isn't always pain free:)

    Thank you all for your comments...Judy, I thought spring had reached us too but
    today it is cold and tomorrow and maybe Saturday too we are expecting more
    snow in the forecast...I am glad I got out to shoot the flowers before they freeze.
