The landscapers seem to have a thing for bare ground in certain public areas. In one area Purslane happens to want to grow which tends to be a prostrate and inoffensive ground cover. We whine about "global warming" while they spray it into oblivion. Instead of heat absorbing ground cover all it is is an eroded waste area between struggling shrubs which I am sure it due to the constant erosion. Can't have clover either cause that might bring bees which people run from in terror while other wonder where all the bees went. Why do I have to live around idiots?

You don't. However, purssy is a plant that will take over if not removed. If they aren't using a lot of chemicals, pick it and eat it.
