Headed up to Tennessee to see my friend Darrell! I had to make some stops on the 8 hour drive, of course.

This was a nice little park in Hope, Arkansas. :)

Solanum carolinense, Carolina horsenettle is not a true nettle, but a member of the Solanaceae, or nightshade family. It is a perennial herbaceous plant, native to the southeastern United States that has spread widely throughout North America. This plant has hard spines along the stems that can penetrate the skin and break off, causing much pain.
