These thorny plants are in the roadsides everywhere I drive. When the Queen Ann's Lace was in abundance, these looked different, but they were everywhere. Now, they are mostly brown. The other night, I was out at twilight to take a picture of a steel silo. It must be the farmer roots in me, but I love silos. I did get some nice pictures, but these were in the road along the way:
There was a cornfield in behind them. The corn around here suffered a lot because this is the second year of drought. It's kind of bedraggled looking, so I didn't take many pictures of it. The thorns were so good, I took their picture again in black and white.
I did get the silo, but this wasn't my favorite picture. It would have been nicer if the sun had more colour in it, or if there were some dramatic clouds.
