  2. Do people buy those to decorate their rock yards? Do they have rock yards there, like in Arizona?

  3. Well, it sure is easy to see why it's called tumbleweed. :)

  4. Tumbleweeds can be a huge problem in some areas. And I've heard that Texas Longhorn cattle were quite resilient and long-lasting because they used their horns to protect themselves from the tumbleweeds so prevalent in central and west Texas.

  5. Not a sight I like to see along my fence. Those nasty things show up any time of year and can become a big problem.

  6. Not the best features in a landscape, but I can picture being out in a dry, windy desert and seeing these bounce along. It's evocative to me...

  7. That is a first for me! Wonder how they all ended up in the same place.

  9. I remember seeing some of these while travelling in parts of the American west. Quite peculiar.

    Good capture!

  10. Although they are nice to look at, the Russian thistle is a nuisance plant, scattering seeds as it tumbles across the land driven by the wind.
