Fields of phallus

Went on a frozen outing to the dog park. It's not the most attractive place, but there's a skate park there also and fun jungle jimmy stuff to play on. Lo and behold, we found beauty amidst the suburban blah -- a little grove of scrappy trees coated in frozen fog that made the branches look like something from the sea. 

Then we came upon a field of frozen dickweeds. I dated a botanist once. He could rattle off plant names in Latin like nobody's business & it was so hot when he did that. I wish I knew what those crazy dickweed plants really are, but I haven't a clue.

After leaving the field of phallus, we stumbled into a grove strewn with Christmas balls, tinsel and silver rope in the bushes and on the ground, all scattered about like the remnants of a wild woodland holiday party.

While on safari, it's best to expect the unexpected, even in the most ordinary of places.

Thanks Neve! Glad you enjoyed the trip.

Hell Yes I'm hot now BadAss! Any Latin would have been exciting, but you found my dickweed! And it's a cool phallic weed too, with medicinal properties! And you can smoke it!

Gosh, thanks!

Did you ever notice that any plant that looks like a cock has medicinal properties? Funny how that works!
