Puffball Shrubberies

In my opinion, it may all be down to the slow nocturnal creep of the puffball shrubberies. They puff up in a good rain and spread devastation wherever they go.



In this photo, the shrubberies have abandoned their former habitat just across the street. Clearly their job was done here. What we've only recently discovered is that streets are no barrier. In fact, it is obvious they thrive on pavement.

What I've observed, in my research, is that puffball shrubberies (shrubbia puffballis) exhibit amazing adaptation strategies.
