Pretty to look at, but watch out for sharp thorns on these plants

Pretty to look at, but watch out for sharp thorns on these plants
These plants planted next to a pedestrian walkway are covered with sharp thorns, says STOMPer Resident. Walk too close to them and you could be in for a painful experience.

Here's what the concerned STOMPer wrote in an email today (Aug 23):

"This picture was taken at the junction of Bukit Batok East Avenue 6 and Bukit Batok Street 22.

"Planted beside the walkway are some plants with very sharp thorns and if you are not careful these thorns can cause you a lot of pain and discomfort.

"Plants planted near public walkways should not be a hazard to pedestrians. I hope this plant can be removed."
