HB, Bro!


In honor of my Bro’s b-day today (forty-something), how ’bout some science? Since he’s a scientist, of course (that’s him in front of me)….

Here is an article by Heike Vibrans, “Epianthropochory in Mexican Weed Communities.” The title and abstract sent me to the dictionary (sometimes Wikipedia) multiple times….

Today’s vocabulary:


humans as dispersers of species, here weeds from fields (I gather)

Bonus points: agrestal

    Love those old pictures. And while googling for “agrestal,” I found garden whimsy (hope the link works):

    Ah, agrestal. I discovered that word because the name of the housing development where the characters lived in Weeds was Agrestic, which I just had to look up….

    Your garden whimsy is far more interesting….
