I think it is a bramble. Possibly a seedling from something like Oregon Thornless, reverting to its thorny past
It looks like wind damage in the photo but you've seen it for real.
If it's in the Peak Park maybe you could contact someone there to see what they think.
Hi Ryan, good to see you again
They are Forester.
It's a large shredder, nearly as tall as me, otherwise I'd be worrying about being drawn in myself
I wear eye protectors and ear defenders Forester. Bramble or briar or blackthorn ripped off my ear defenders and hat, then tried to take my ear as well
If I tell Dove she'll get the whip out
Thanks Edd, we have plenty of those
You grew the broccoli KEF, now you're pruning it. That's gardening
Thanks Edd, that should sort the fingers. Can't think of a way to hold the stuff on my ear lobe. Any ideas?
