Tumbleweed Seeds

02 Nov

Bongo Sniffing a TumbleweedThey came here all the way from Russia? Isn’t that a long ways away?

What? You mean they came over here before they even had airplanes? So they had ships full of tumbleweeds coming all the way over here? They must have known that without them the Wild West wouldn’t be the same. But it must have taken a lot of ships to bring all those tumbleweeds over. Those things are big.

Oh. They have little bitty seeds, huh? And it only took a few mixed in with the flaxseed? How come we don’t have flax rolling all over the place?

Oh. Flax doesn’t roll, huh?

Last spring we had baby tumbleweeds growing in my wash, but the rain came and water flowed through my wash, and those tumbleweeds disappeared before they were big enough to tumble.

But this one must have grown somewhere else, because it sure was big enough to tumble into my wash.

But since these tumbleweeds are so much a part of the Wild West, does that mean the Wild West is a part of the tumbleweeds?

There’s probably going to be a couple men on horses galloping down my wash any minute. And then a few minutes later the Sheriff’s Posse will be coming after them.

I think I’d better move away from this tumbleweed before I get run over.

      Marina, those tumbleweeds have pokey things all over them too. I’m not messing with one of them.

    Better get moving fast Bongo. Don’t like the sounds of wild west horses bearing down on you!

      Rumpy, I’ve got one of those for you – if you can’t find your own, that is.

    That is some weed! I definitely would back off if I was you.

      Dogdaz, those things are mean. My person has had them attack her car when she was innocently driving down the highway.

    Bongo! That’s so cool…like on TV. Tumblin’ tumbleweeds. You are so brave to go up and sniff one. What if it rolled over you?

      Nanina, that tumbleweed seemed to be resting pretty. It’s when it gets windy that you have to worry.

    I’m wondering if the horse runs faster than you do, Bongo. We dogs might run much faster than horse….no…?

      Kevin, those horses are big and they run fast. I could probably escape though by running between trees that the horses were too big to fit through.

    Hey Bongo, Jet here.

    Dude, now I get what Mom means when she tells people that Casa Jetty has tumbleweeds INSIDE! (she refers to our gorgeous fluffy fur of course!) Thanks for sharing the heritage of said tumbleweeds, (mixed in with flax, never knew that…) you are so smart. 🙂

      Hey Jet, I had to put my research assistant to work on the tumbleweed thing. She knew they came from Russia but she learned more when she looked online. We get tumbleweeds in our house too – but it’s Scratchy that’s responsible. He pulls his fur out in clumps. Mine you don’t notice so much because it’s evenly spread everywhere.

    This was very confusing Bongo! Tumbleweed from Russia on your trails and very big ones. We have not ever seen a tumbleweed and don’t think they look very friendly 😦

      Lexie and Mica, those tumbleweeds can be mean. My person has had them attack her car when she’s been driving down the highway on a windy day.

    Bongo, tumbleweeds are cool, you make me stepping right into the movie, hee-haa… 😀

      Angels Whisper, tumbleweeds are cool in the movies, but I think they should stay backstage until it’s time for the show.

    Ginger thought Albert Einstein had lost his hair…..

      Ginger, that does look like Albert Einstein’s hair, doesn’t it? Maybe he watched old westerns and was making a fashion statement.
