This is a good time of year for white, poofy-puffy things. Sometimes it is seed heads; sometimes it is the flowers themselves.
The human female is laying claim to this one, saying it is her “Kania.”
Well, mortal, what if *I* want it? Huh? Do you truly think you could take anything from me if I really wanted it?
Sigyn, ever the peace-maker, is rightly pointing out that there is oodles (her word) of this vine rambling all over the ground here. Plenty for the human female, for me, and for Sigyn. Hel, there is even some if Fisi wants to widdle on it.
Sigyn has found her own fluffy white bed.
Say, those flowers look very similar to the Kania ones. Oh. The human female says the plants are related, “belonging to the same tribe of the Asteraceae, the Eupatoriae. Note the slender style branches.” How very…boring. But I do think I recognize the plant. I put some in the humans’ front flower bed last year. It was quite robust and grew to a great height before producing an abundance of these dirty-white flowers. This spring the human female discovered it had left about a half a million descendants, all over the flower beds and the lawn. She is still pulling them up! Note to self: Do it again next year.
These white flowers are all very well, but isn’t there something a little more colorful?
Clever Sigyn! Yes, these are very showy. Wait for me, and I shall climb up to join you.
Curses! I seem to be…
… caught on something.
