Monday already. Sometimes I feel prickly on Monday - because it is the beginning of the week and I have to get thru 5 days until the weekend. So many things to do - so much to be done. I found this huge pricker plant on the ground while I was looking for some fall color pictures. I guess it pays to look down sometimes. We had our first frost yesterday, so things will start looking different. I like patterns in nature and this plant was interesting because of the way it radiated out from the center. I increased the contrast a bit and darkened the edges. It's just a fun ordinary picture!
