I have a couple of rose bushes in the back yard that are called "William Baffin" roses. They're beautiful, but after last year's non-winter, they needed to be cut back pretty hard. I did that at the end of May, and getting stuck by a rose thorn is pretty much expected for jobs like that. The only problem is, one spot where I was pricked by the the rose became infected.
I've been keeping it clean and figured it'd get better on it's own, but had to go to the Dr yesterday for a renewal on allergy meds. My thumb caught his attention, and I got into trouble.
I'm on antibiotics and have been instructed to keep it wrapped and relatively immobile for the next week.
Who knew that gardening was so dangerous?
