Well? Does a Boganvillia have thorns?
I reckon it's one of those climbing roses. Masses of flowers and, yes, full of prickles!!
I have no idea ...... I used to think stinging nettles were lovely until ............

The new bogans don't have thorns. Been a long time since I heard those nasty stinging nettles mentioned. Apparently they make a good cup of tea????

Wonderful Jim. Brought back memories. Takes a long time to sow 300 acres with one of those with a 40hp tractor. (without a cab)
Pity they've lost the spring tyne assembly.
Ours ended up as a terrific beehive in the corner of a paddock. Was easier & safer to leave it there & buy a bigger model with hydraulics.
Ever noticed the old steel in the old machinery never rusts? Must ask Julian about that one day!

I forget the actual location of the tulip farm that the photo was taken, but we had left Boyup Creek and were on our way to Kojonup when we diverted to "Tulips with a difference". That was late September, 2014 and the farm had opened their doors to the public for 14 years and 2014 was the last year. So we were lucky to be there at the right time.
