More locusts photos....

Last weekend when we went for our drive, the drive where I got the photos of Miami mist, spiderwort, etc, we came across this barn.
We went on down the lane and I got this side view of it....
then came to this locust right beside the road. I am not sure what kind of locust it is--it only had buds and no open blooms at the time I took this. I think it is a honey locust, but feel free to correct me if I am wrong. I know my mom and dad always said locusts made good fence posts. What I don't know is if that applies to all types of locusts.
Just thought I would show you the thorns that were growing on it. I don't think I would want to grab hold of these by accident. I think it would be quite painful.
As usual, click to enlarge!
