Purple Crown Vetch is considered "invasive", but I grew up around land reclamation, so it is as much a part of me as anything else. The petals are parturient and somewhat remind me of clover. It will be my favorite flower of the week.
I rode a quick twenty trail miles last night and finally saw killdeer nesting in the gravel. I really like the rings that define them, how they balance on thin tall legs, and the way they scurry from their nests. I pretend I am able to 'talk' to them but I'm sure they are thinking I'm simply invasive.

Professor Charles Soludo is always sending me e-mails about the percentage of the $20,000,000USD that he wants me to have.
