Russian Invasion - TUMBLEWEEDS
Image 1 of 1 Click to Enlarge Image
 
There is one shrub that actually likes the drought and is covering the trails with thick clouds of green.  NO, this is NOT a good thing:  TUMBLEWEEDS are taking over.
 
The picture shows weeds taller than my horse along Chesebro Rd. in Agoura Hills.
 
The invasive non-indigenous plant migrated from Russia in the 1870's  This year, dought conditions have helped a major infestation turn into a fire hazard:  when the weeds dry up, they break away from their root to form a rolling ball of kindling. Some weeds grow over 30 feet in diameter.
