March Squares – Spikes – # 1


March Squares – Spikes – # 1

Don’t let the barbed wire put you off!


Look at this…we have another month of square photos, hosted by Becky! The topic for this time is anything spiky, pointy, jagged, sharp, serrated, and anything else we can think of that will fit.

You, too, can join in this fun photo challenge. Just click the above link to find out details.


I’ve been making a list of all things spiky, and taking photos of them, too. I want to have a song to go with them, but we’ll see if I can find enough.

Anyway, to start things off I took this photo outside of a Mexican restaurant the other day. This kind of plant we see all the time around here. Let me see if I can find out what it is…either yucca or bear grass. Being that where I live is in the semi-desert, these grow very well here. Okay, I found out they are a little bit different plants, but can be called by either name.



Then, I found this cute little song about a porcupine. They have quills that are very spiky!


Thanks for visiting! Peace ☮️

  1. You know the old joke: “How do porcupines procreate?” — very, very carefully! Sorry, I know it’s a chestnut. And I will be looking for a porcupine or possibly a hedgehog in my files for a square.

  2. Porcupettes! How cute is that?!? You know what surprised me? Until I saw one in person, I had no idea porcupines are so big! I was all WOW. I thought they were more the size of possum.
    I have two yuccas. They bring hummingbirds in August. Other than that, I’m not a fan. *sigh* They look weird here, to me. Obviously they grow here, just they look tropical or at the very least, hot, to me. *shrugs*
    Great take on the prompts 🙂

    • Thanks, Joey!
      I can’t remember ever seeing a porcupine for real, either…so they are really big? Interesting, and I don’t think I’d want to meet up with one, even though they are pretty cute. Love the baby name for them!
      I guess yucca is more of a hot climate plant, and they are everywhere here. But my daughter in MO had one in her yard…or it was similar? a century plant I think. 🙂
