We have a triffid growing next door.
At least, I'm pretty sure it's a triffid. It kudzu-ed its way to domination of the neighbor's backyard and is now swelling up over the back garden wall. Scores of tentacles flail the air, seeking something to grip, entwine and overpower.
It's coming for my balcony. You can see the greedy little green fingers reaching out. And each day it's a little closer.
I think I'm going to have to take up arms against this sea of tendrils. Like some big pruning shears.
Although I don't know what sort of defense mechanisms it might possess. You know that scene from 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea where they fight the squid? What if I'm dragged off the balcony?
Wish me luck. I'm afraid.
