Mesquite in the Spring

This mesquite tree is in Mineral Wells, Texas in the nearby fossil dig pit. The leaves are just now budding out.

One time while out in the woods, I kneeled right on a fallen mesquite thorn–it slid right under my kneecap. About 45 minutes later my knee was hot and hurt. A few days later I went to the doctor when I couldn’t walk without wincing.

I learned that there is such a thing as an infection of the synovial fluid in a joint. I wish I had discovered this without a personal experience.
