After my softball game on Tuesday night in Encino (we lost but it was a good game) my teamates spotted what has to be the largest tumbleweed ever just chilling in the big dirt parking lot near the sports fields. It's also the first tubleweed I've seen outside of films and Bonanza. Who knew that they are simply a dead bush up rooted and rolling around? Not this Manhattanite.
We had to take photos in front of it for height comparisons, as you can see it's almost bigger than me (on the left). It looks like a bail of hay almost and even though the rolling weed was prickly and heavy, two of the girls picked the massive thing up.
