A Force To Be Reckoned With

This tiny sprout is a force to be reckoned with. As a kid, I called it a stinkweed tree because of the strong smell of the leaves. Later on I learned it was also called a tree of heaven.

These little sprouts spring up all over and can easily take over your yard. They are a force to be reckoned with. Here is an example of how big these trees can get when they are allowed to grow.

They can look pretty, almost tropical, but can grow out of control. My little stinkweed popped up in a small space between my house and back porch. I kind of hate to pull it out, but I know I must. At least it has had it’s photographed moment of glory.

I think it qualifies as a force of nature in my corner of the world. To see other responses to the weekly photo challenge, look here:
