nature's ornament

An orange with spikes? Indeed.
At a distance, I thought these were light bulbs
but on closer look
I was told
it's a poison fruit.
The family plant this for decoration.
They do not know where it comes from
and it's one of its kind.
It's a climber.
Name...no one knows.
Rare indeed!

Now this could really be classified as a forbidden fruit. Awesome picture, Lea.

Interesting I will have to find a similar photo taken last year. Perhaps they are relatives ;)
