the turf grass that dominates the surburban ecosystem of North America. And I do, especially when it comes up where I don’t want. But, still, it’s hard not to respect the root I pulled up with this sprout (which actually was even longer, I broke it off — ensuring a new sprout of course).
It’s just doing what it evolved to do. We (or Faith and Harold, who preceded me on this land) are the ones who put it here.
