Can you believe that kudzu vines cover more than 7 million acres in the south?  I learned this when I Googled “kudzu” recently to learn more about it.  I also learned that it can grow as much as a foot a day in the summer months, up to sixty feet in a year.  It’s no wonder that it’s everywhere!

I often imagine that I see familiar shapes in the mounds of vines and leaves that cover trees, electric poles, and whatever else that it happened to wander across.  In this photo, I see a couple of “critters” of some sort.  Maybe grizzly bears.  Do you see anything?

Here’s a link to a website that has lots of information and links.  People are doing some really interesting things with kudzu!   afs
