The warm weather is finally moving in, turning the frozen tundra back into a desert.
Which in turn, signals massive windstorms to sweep down from the mountians.
And with those giant wind storms.. Comes hordes of tumbleweeds.
It got me wondering though, because I have seen Quite a few different varieties.
Most of them (like the one below) Look fluffy/fuzzy on their branches, more of a cream color, with few spines. However, I have also seen some that are very brown, denser, And look closer to barb wire as they are practically nothing more than a ball of spines.
Online, the pictures still look different than anything blowing around here,
But they all have the uniform stem break.
Does anybody know anything on russian thistles and their variants?
Can anyone identify this one?
