This location is at my cabin on Whidbey Island. The weather was 60 degrees and sunny with light clouds and slight breeze. Many different birds were chirping in the forest. Many Cedars and pines in the forest, as well as Madrone and Red Alder. This bush is small- around 14 inches tall. Some branches were thorny and others were bare or forming small thorns. Thorns would only be present on branches that have either leaves or flowers. Only one branch had flowers.
