Tumbleweeds are the detached portion of the Russian Thistle plant. They dry into a rounded shape that make them perfect for the wind to blow them long distances as long as the ground is flat. They pile up against buildings, along the sides of highways, and some people even make sculptures out of them. They have stickers so you have to pick them up carefully, but they are fun for little kids to play with.
