    Genie you’re a genius. I have that stuff pop up in the yard and I’ve never put a name to it. Go check out the Wikipedia entry on it, interesting read.

    So that’s what that’s called! I have it too! I try not to have it, but there it is.

    Steven, I’ll definitely check that out. I’ll tell you what…I’m glad I didn’t try to eat the berries…that would NOT have been genius.

    Jeanne, I kind of think it’s pretty, though…definitely don’t mind having it around.

    I’ve never seen it.
    It’s very cool.

    Mockingbirds in my garden love the pokeweed berries.

    Chigiy, I wonder if it grows out our way. I’m not sure what its native reach is.

    Carole, really? They must not find them poisonous.
