Cat's Claw?






Let's switch for a minute to the Southwest. My sister sent this organic sculptural ensemble from Arizona. We have always referred to the individual piece as Cat's claw. However, when I googled the plant name today, I couldn't find any images that matched the dried fruit(?). Everything referred to the thorns on the Cat Claw plant, acacia greggii.

















That's our Dudley, being his nosey little self.
