Re: Paulownia

No doubt- just noticed today that my mom's pond has
cattails in it... I was horrified and gave her the
third degree about where she got them and why did she
put them there...

Of course, she said she didn't, but with the terror of
my yelling, I am sure even if she did, she wouldn't
admit it..

Tomorrow's project is to get them out before they get
out of hand... if they aren't already.
