Giant Hogweed

During the 70's (I remember SOME Of it), I was a huge Genesis fan. But, like most Americans and except for Lamb Lies Down, I wasn't familiar with most of the meaning behind the British oriented lyrics. So, getting back to my roots (pun not intended) I recently decided to look into what much of it means. In doing so (for the song Return Of The Giant Hogweed, from the Nursery Crymes album, which you can hear <!--http--><a href="" target="_blank"> HERE </a><!--url-->), I came across this bit of interesting foliage phenomena. I thought it was purely a European issue, but apparently the US/Northwest is affected (see below). Since it grows near water, it may be of interest to fly guys out west (and worldwide it appears)!

Beware the Giant Hogweed!
