As usual I was poking around my house looking for neat things to take neat pictures of. I found this plant.
It is a family heirloom plant that has been passed down through the generations. My family is very matriarchal and they like to do things like that. Sometimes I wish I was more sentimental, but that just isn’t who I am.
This plant is called a crown of thorns and it is reported to be the plant that was put on the head of Jesus while he was being crucified. I’m not saying that this is the same plant that has been passed down through my family history, but that would be a pretty neat thing.
I just want to add that this plant is a bit of a nightmare to move. Every time we have to deal with it, someone gets stabbed by those vicious thorns.
