Oh Christmas Weed, Oh Christmas Weed...

The Christmas Weed
(not cannibis)

This weekend I discovered a 20-inch (50.8 cm) weed on our back patio. Trying to get Big Daddy to "get in the spirit" of lawn care, I added a lone Christmas ball and made an announcement.

"This year, instead of putting up a Christmas tree, we are going to have a Christmas Weed," I said.

He laughed, saying it looked like a Charlie Brown tree. 

Now, if he would only cut the grass...

Update:  As it is now Monday and the weed still lives, I offer up a fractured song lyric.

Oh, Christmas Weed, Oh, Christmas Weed,

How Grinchy are thy "branches."

Oh, Christmas Weed, Oh, Christmas Weed,

As cuddly as a cactus.

Pernicious as a dandelion,

Will you be here past Christmas time? 

Oh, Christmas Weed, Oh, Christmas Weed,

How Grinchy are thy "branches." 

Do you have a Christmas weed (not cannibis) just waiting to be trimmed?  Share a photo!

Ha ha, yes I have two, one green one variegated, I thought your comment about the lawn not being cut, ha ha he could come and try my meadow lawn, it's just so wet my hubby can't even think of cutting it at the moment, it's not been cut for months, I think it was August when he last did it, since then it just keeps raining and raining oh and a three days of snow on it.
My Christmas weed will be trimmed for Christmas

I love your fractured lyrics. You did a great job. My hubby is out cutting down our Christmas weeds right now!

LOL! At least it's dressed for the season:-0 No, I don't have any big Christmas weeds - at least not as can be seen from the house windows. Anything hiding behind the garage or the lagoon is none of my business :-P

That's hilarious. I think it's a crab grass. Those are painfully sharp.
