I have posted photos previously, last year and before that, showing trees covered by Kudzu. The strange shapes it often takes once it has totally enveloped an area.
Kudzu’s ever expanding reach is accomplished through the thick vines.
If it could talk we would probably hear how beautiful the Kudzu would make a nearby plant. Saying something like “Let me dress you with my lush leaves. You will look so plump and vibrantly healthy”.
Being offered the temptation of stunning beauty of course anyone would love to look better.
Only too late does the plant realize the price of vanity is a costly one. Kudzu’s tendril vines wrap around the branches of the plant. Reshaping the plants structure by the strangle hold of the Kudzu.
I’m no good at story telling, at least not this kind. Thought you would like to see how Kudzu thrives in the south by having close up views of it instead of the blasting down the highway shots across the medians.
Here are some pretty yellow flowers with maroon-like centers dancing in the light breeze not far from the devilish temptation of the Kudzu.
Happy Mother’s Day (tomorrow) to all of you mothers out there. Hope you enjoy your weekend.
