It’s hard to think of a living being that has a more serene existence than our leafy, rooted friends. They get to sit in the sun, soak up all the soil’s nutrients and grow at their own pace. On top of that, their life is not only easy, but it’s an essential part of maintaining the health of the earth.
However, it would seem that while all these things may be true, many plants are not as peaceful as we many would like to make them out to be. In an eye opening Tumblr thread, users explain how there are many species who will stop at nothing to dominate the world around them. Beginning with tree houses, pivoting to goats and ending with eating salad, there’s not one post that could be seen as an expected twist in the tale. The message is clear: it’s time to stop underestimating our greenery (especially if it happens to be kudzu).
