Blackberry Brambles - A Yardist Bloodsport

The blackberry brambles are pinching and grabbing like petulant children.  They arch across the walking paths.   They demand attention with thorns that don't just point out but are backward facing.  Little surgical hooks that catch and pull.  When the captive victim leans in to release first then the next ones take a hold.

I came in from mowing the yard and I realize I am spotted with bright red blood.
