Noxious vegetation.

Portland is covered with Himalayan Blackberry (Rubus armeniacus) and English Ivy (Hedera Helix) to the point that it is literally choking out the indiginous vegetation. It drips off the trees like gawdy jewelery off of a rapper.It would be cool if I could harvest it and turn it into ethanol to fuel our city buses. The city would pay me to harvest the Invasive weed off the land... and then they would pay me again for the fuel. maybe something similar could be done with the opossum as well.

Good work on the foliage.

I remember this kind of creeping vine back in Illinois too! It chokes off everything!

Nice line work in the drawing, though! :)
