Foreground McDonald's parking flowerbed, and ever-threatening encroachment of savage area beyond.

Foreground McDonald's parking flowerbed, and ever-threatening encroachment of savage area beyond.
The pink flowers are pretty. I try to believe in earth-friendliness but the region of bunched-up greenery beyond the guardrail looks kind of gross. The dead trees impart a sickly feel to their vicinity. I keep catching whiffs of spoilage and old dried-up ketchup. I wouldn't wade off into that heavy growth of wildplants unless I wanted to take on an array of skin flareups and bugbites, and to be attacked by copperheads. It's too-easy to imagine that the jungle's forest floor is strewn with carcasses of raccoons and groundhogs and the like.
