Someone please call the National Guard or at least the National Inquirer. My garden has been invaded. Aliens are trying to take over...several species have made a pact to conquer all they see.
Bush Honeysuckle (nonnative Loniceras) plants moves stealthily through the gardens...it has created a rather ingenious mode of transportation. He allows native birds to digest his offspring and they are transpooped to new environments. Natives are quickly subdued and their habitat is taken over.
Evidence: Small seedlings everywhere!
Here he is hiding among the forsythia, soon he will blend in with the green leaves of the shrub hedge. Right now he is most vulnerable and I can sneak up and take him out with my laser pruners and a dab of Glyphosate on this hydra monster's many heads.
Then on to free the rest of my world from this cruel invader and his cohorts.
I had to post this.
