FREE Tumble Weeds

The great Tumble Weed Round-Up of 2011.

Being new to the desert we did not know what a tumble weed looked like until it was too late. Now we are overun so I recruited the kiddos and we had a round up. This is only a small portion of them.

They are VERY pokey and not fun to play with.

Are they safe to burn? I saw that pile and my first thought was BONFIRE!!!!

Kim Detmers said...

Yeah, bring the hot dogs!
It is against city code to burn them. However, that does not stop some people from doing it. I guess they can afford the ticket. ????

Well dang it. There isn't much better in the winter than a nice big bonfire. And hot dogs roasted oven an open fire ROCK!

Tumbleweeds...one of the things that I don't miss about New Mexico, plus the sandstorms!

Hi Lupe,
Yes I know what you mean. We live 15 miles or so from white sands and sometimes we enjoy white sands in our backyard.
The wind makes me feel like a crazy woman.
