The last spike is a bristle

This is one of the many bristly brushes used over the decades (quite a few by me!) to scrub the wooden decks on the tall ships Tenacious (seen here) and Lord Nelson (there’s a photo of ‘Nellie’ in the gallery below).

March’s square theme is Spiky Squares (spiky, jagged, pointy, bristly, serrated, prickly, spiny, and/or barbed). As always with a Square challenge, thanks are due to Becky for hosting and keeping us all in touch.
Here’s a round-up (square-up?) of my offerings for the past month:

Pointy Pines

Isle of Pines New Caledonia

Hmm, are these trees pointy or spiky?

Hot off the press! (Well, hot from the camera, anyway.) I took this photo a few days ago near Isle of Pines (New Caledonia), one of the many smaller islands. Aren’t these the oddest looking pine trees? They are columnar pine trees and are native to New Caledonia. More info about the trees here if you’re curious.
