The Thing In My Back Yard

The Thing

Photo taken on Friday, January 10th, 2013 at 11:11 a.m. I’ve been watching this plant (weed) growing in my back yard for a few weeks, or maybe a couple of months. I’m pretty sure this is a thistle plant but I like to call it “The Thing”….. as in the thing growing in my back yard. When I first noticed it was there, my first thought was to get outside and remove it out of the ground as soon as possible because I don’t know how fast those things spread, but my curiosity got the best of me and so because I love the purple flowers a thistle plant produces I decided to leave it so I can watch it grow. It can’t grow any faster than the kudzu that tries taking over the back yard every year I guess.

My name is David, and I am an amateur photographer, nature enthusiast, night owl, and gadget geek, into social networking, and blogging. I love movies, and music of all sorts, and especially love taking day trips to outdoor places especially where water is located. I also love dining out occasionally for the shear pleasure of being served a nice meal. In other words I'm just a normal guy who enjoys simple things in life :-)
