Nice garden ye have there

Some people just can't be bothered to look after their gardens, while others wake up to this.

This is what greeted Texan Josh Pitman on Monday after a brutal storm system that brought 19 inches of snow to parts of West Texas delivered something entirely different to him.

Winds of more than 60mph that accompanied the blizzard pushed hundreds of tumbleweeds against his home.

The local TV station said one side of Pitman’s house was obscured by tumbleweeds stacked on top of each other, blocking some doorways.

Mr Pitman who said it was the “most ridiculous thing” he had ever seen, expects to spend the rest of the week clearing the pesky weeds.

He said he recently tore down a fence that would have protected his home from the rambling weeds.

Bad luck Josh!
