SEEN AT THE PORTAL TO ANOTHER WORLD
In fairy tales, there are often barriers to guard the princess, the treasure,or whatever....and the hero has to battlle his way through the brambles. I think rose hips would make a good barrier. First they draw you in with their deceptive beauty, then they trap you in their thorny vines. (Spoken by one who had her warm winter hat snatched off my head by some.When I tried to pull free, it scratched me)!Had to find another way around.
