10/365 The Battle of Fallopia Balschuanica

For today’s tale, it helps if you are familiar with the lexicon of Star Trek, The Next Generation, for today I am relating to you the story of the Battle of Fallopia Balschuanica.

Fallopia Balschuanica might sound like the name of a remote stellar system, but in reality it is a garden plant . Like Star Trek’s The Borg, the plant is invasive, instead of assimilating people, it assimilates garden space.

It doesn’t matter how much you cut it back, it lives to grow again. Prolifically. Warranting it’s other name; Mile-a-Minute, and it does grow very fast.

It is only a few weeks ago that I last encountered the The Borg of the Plant world. It had been invading the fence between us and next door. The plant is so determined that it is invading the brick wall.

Today I spent two or three hours cutting it back, quite a cathartic period really even though it rained several times, once quite intently such that I had to abandon the battle. Nonetheless, I persisted.

Today I decided to do something drastic. I think I may have cut out the centre of the hive of the Borg Plant. Have I hit it fatally? Who knows. Only time will tell whether or not it’s heart, the centre of the hive has been removed.

I just want to write, but I prefer to stay away from controversial topics like politics. I am happy to confess that at the moment, I am writing for me. If you enjoy my writings, and I hope you do then that is all the better.
