I'm always afraid that I'm going to move something in that is too
invasive, but this one spreads very gradually.

I enjoy such photos. It seems to me the proper question is not what will envade (something will) but whether you like what will envade. After that it becomes can I tolerate it anyway. At least that is the way thinkin' goes here.

Only real mistake I made here was scatterin'  nodding thistle seeds everywhere. My mother had told me a story of how as a young girl they had used the prepared blooms to make powder puffs. Thinkin' some I'd rather there be ugly women than have to deal with the thistles. Most of the birds here disagree.

Pretty plant. Save me some seed please. Prechate the photo.
