While plant shopping this weekend, I stumbled upon a lovely palm tree. I'm not real good with palms, so I couldn't tell you which one it was. Probably one of the marginally hard ones for here in Portland.
It was obvious it had been there a little while.
What intrigued me the most was the cast of characters that had made themselves at home in the palm and this was only the plant life.
Getting a little closer you could see the ferns, Himalayan blackberry and the dandelions growing out of the trunk.
I guess it isn't the kind of trunk that's very amenable to just sticking your hand in to pull out a weed.
It's a little world of weeds.
