Pretty, Yellow, Noxious

We thought the headline said "Weed grips thousands of Californians" but sadly, one does not get high on yellow star thistle. Or no one's talking. Whatever the case, Invasive Weeds Awareness Week is coming up (July 17, on the heels of that other big American holiday, Bastille Day) and we thought you should know. Since this yellow star thistle is native to North Africa, why not just call it Immigrant Weed Awareness Week. Easier to organize the posse.
