Well, there you go. To add a little to what @Tyrese69961 said, Sigrid’s had some international success too. She has toured in most of Europe and in the US. In addition, she has appeared on the biggest festivals in the UK, where her debut album peaked as high as number 4 in the album charts,

That information is of course very complementary to my type of information. She has had a remarkable international success also then obviously. :hugs:

… that the tumbleweed, known from many Westerns, does not come from America, but was introduced as an invasive species, probably with flax deliveries?

From Wikipedia:

Kali tragus is a species of flowering plant in the family Amaranthaceae. It is known by various common names such as prickly Russian thistle, windwitch, or common saltwort. It is widely known simply as tumbleweed because in many regions of the United States, it is the most common and most conspicuous plant species that produces tumbleweeds.
Kali tragus has proven to be highly invasive as an introduced species and rapidly became a common ruderal weed of disturbed habitats in many regions of North America, particularly in the Midwest. The species also has become naturalized in various regions of Central and South America and in parts of Southern Africa and Australia. It now occupies a wide variety of habitat types in those regions and often is the first or even the only colonizer in conditions where no local species can compete successfully. Because of its preference for sand and its tolerance of salinity, it commonly grows along sea beaches as well as in disturbed grassland and desert communities, especially in semiarid regions.

I just found out about this on a TV quiz show, and because Tumbleweed likes to roll through some apartments and topics here, I found this information quite fitting :grin:
