Side Street Sunday: In the Weeds (1)

Every week on my way to see my son I pass a very old brick entryway on Spring Road in Hammonton New Jersey. The entryway is almost fully covered in weeds and vines of various plants.

For part one of my Side Street Sunday post I want to share just a few of the weeds that I noticed. I have no idea what the names of the weeds are but I have always liked the first one and I thought the second two were interesting.

The next post will be on the entryway and some history on the location.

Could you?

Driving down the highway on my way home I was behind this car that had an interesting sign on the window:

~~POOP~~

~~POOP~~

 

All Dogs Poop!  I can imagine that this can be a very lucrative business as there is plenty of shit poop out there but could you open a business to clean it up?

I have worked various jobs to help put food on the table for my kids but I would never in a million years have thought of doing this.  However if push came to shove and this was all that was available I would be right there with my little shovel.

Lunch time view on two different occasions.  The first image was taken the on the 5th of June and the other two images were taken on the 2nd of July.

I remember as a child my mother would go down to the local lake and cut these to have in the house.  They would last forever.
