As I was waiting for the last load of wood pellets to loaded into the bed of JT I walked about a bit. As is the case more times than not areas that have no importance to a business image or bottom line usually gets little care. It is a case I am sure of “out of sight, out of mind” and in some cases this leads/adds to urban blight. Not the case here because nature has reclaimed the area and made it its own. This is made possible by a man-made drainage ditch which separates the homes, lining the back of this business, from the access road to the loading docks. Along the ditch trees have done well for themselves. This has minimized human intrusion and has allowed a green-space to flourish there. One of the plants growing there is Thistle, which some see in a very negative light. I see them as little filling stations for pollinators and since they have not taking over the green-space here I think it is because nature knows how to take care of its own. So here is some more Thistle love.
