So this is the weed I’m focusing on. It’s Salsola tragus, also known as Russian thistle (but that’s a misnomer because it is not even a thistle or even in that family, but it’s spiny, so it’s reminiscent of a thistle) and it’s also known as tumbleweed. Yes, it’s the tumbleweed that rolls across the desert or along the highway. It’s very iconic and I’m allergic to it. Bummer! Here it is being infested by those darn mites that I’ve drawn before. I kept forgetting what date today was, hence all those scribbles.
