I Spy Espinas

Living in the desert is a spiky affair. When we first moved into our rental house it took the kids just a few hours in the backyard before they realized that we had sent them out to play amidst a plethora of spines, spikes, and thorns. Falling down here doesn’t just result in a scraped hands or knees but also in various sized spikes stuck into the wound. The tricky part is remembering that not all spikes can be detected on first sight. Many hide behind colorful flowers or a particularly verdant looking tree. For the most part we have all learned to tread lightly on our forays outside and most importantly to respect the spike!
