Urban Kudzu

My first memories of kudzu were along Highway 45. Sitting in the back of my mother's station wagon on a trip to the big city I would watch as this sea of green had taken rule over acres of land. Until my Dad told me otherwise, I loved it.

Later I learned that it had been brought here to eliminate erosion and, although it kept the dirt in place, it didn't allow much else to stick around. So maybe some of my first lessons of delving past what I saw with my eyes began with this plant. What I still know today is that all of my greatest lessons were learned early and involved nature.

Great pic on the power of the plant, Scott.

We need a code word that says in some sweet way, "You're being way too obnoxious now, Susan."
