Look what the wind brought inTumbleweed
Turbo's inspection
The wind brought us this beautiful tumbleweed this week
and of course Turbo had to inspect it :)
Weathered branch
I found this other branch a few months ago and it still sits on top of our cabinet.
Did you know some people even collect them and you can buy them online!?

The most bizarre thing about tumbleweed is that it comes primarily from the Russian Olive, which is invasive in North America. So one of the iconic symbols of the West (of the United States) isn't even from there.

Ha! I haven't seen one since I lived in Texas a few years ago. I'm glad you posted the one with Turbo in it- people can actually see how big they can be!

Es verdad que son grandes! en donde vivo aparecen de vez en cuando en los días de viento, y acá les llamamos "cardo ruso". Vas a decorar algo con él?
Te dejo cariños!

Some people in town used to make a snowman in their yard every Christmas with tumble weeds. They would sometimes go all the way to New Mexico to find some really big ones and spray paint them white.

We use to live in New Mexico and had one as our xmas tree - spray painted it white and put tiny white lights on it. After xmas we used it as a nightlight - c-o-o-l!

Tumble weeds are my son's favorite. He wanted to go to Mexico just to see them. I love them too (especially in western movies) :)

Tumbleweeds are russian thistle. Russian olive is a different invasive species.

I like how the reddish branches look against your grey wall.

Those people who sell them really have a mind for business!

Wow - I had no idea that tumbleweed was so beautiful! It's such a ubiquitous icon of the west and desert, that I never really considered what a unique plant form it is. Your photo of the branch on top of your cabinet - it looks like corral!

I live in Wyoming where one runs across tumbleweed on a daily basis. I've always thought they were beautiful. I'm glad somebody is using them as art.

Amiga, hacia tiempo que no me alimentaba el alma de esa manera con todas tus creaciones, estoy emocionada de tanto arte... Creado con las cosas mas sencillas y cotidianas, es hermoso ver atraves de tus ojos,... Te extrañaba tanto.... Un beso y recuerda que siempre estas en mi corazon
