Today, while I was tipping lilac containers and covering the pots to protect them for the winter, Elmer Brown was pulling out invasive shrubs with the tractor.  Elmer is 84 and started and owns the nursery where we work.  Autumn olive, Tatarian honeysuckle, buckthorn are all over the place and are the result of birds eating the berries of bushes people have planted as ornamentals and we have sold over the years.  It make you think twice about planting such invasive plants.
