My weedy, weedy heart!


Those interested parties might take pleasure in the following link
from the New Jersey Weed Gallery (thank you, PJ "80 Snacks" Clark).

Hey lookie! I have my very own grass! MARY’S GRASS! Oh how my feet yearn to take a walk in it. Moist, shady, extremely invasive but not yet economically important...it is my grass.

One girl's weed is another girl's flower. I have lotsa those weeds! ;-)

Buddy says it should be "80 Smacks," but he's been on the lawn eating weeds all morning.

I like how they refuse to give you weed control recommendations, which will backfire when New Jerseyites take matters into their own hands and fight the spread of bamboo grass (l., "bambusa") by peppering their neighborhoods with gluttonous panda bears.

Seen on the 2006 NJ license plate: "Turnpikes, nothin'! We're the Panda Bear State!"

...and on Dept. of Hwy Safety signs: "You hit it, you feed it."

I totally agree, Suzanne (and so does Miss Gabi)!

PJC...please don't attempt to deter the panda movement. If we can't grow hemp legally, we should at least be able to fill our parkways and shoulders with lumbering black and white beasts. Not to mention koalas and shrews of various shapes and styles, and lemurs, and genetically modified barn owls that can do math and sell knockoff Coach bags on street corners...

And stoats!

Stoats? Just googled them...holy shit! One minute they're all cuddly lookin, and then they're like totally rabid and psycho Stoat alert! (scroll down, and be ready). I am going to have serious nightmares now.

At first I thought you were talking about SHOATS. You know, when a sheep has sex with a goat. Oh wait. That's not right. It's a lady pig.

Those stoats freaked me out. *lol*

Isn't it evil, Suzanne? You'd think stoats would be more popular, appearing on heavy metal band t shirts and such... ;)
