Have you looked closely at the last picture I posted?
I neglected to mention it--other things on my mind, I guess, like freezing nighttime temperatures. But if you click on the picture, and then look up at the very top, you see...
Green wire, leaning against the fence.
Yeah? So what?
It's a tomato cage.
I found it.
I was walking Sadie through the commons area between two condominium associations, and stepped over this, laying flat on the ground. About 20 feet later, my brain registered what my eyes had seen, so I went back to look at it.
It was half-buried under last autumn's leaves, so it had been there awhile. But I had NEVER noticed it before.
I left it there one more day, thinking that the owner might have deliberately(?) buried it in the leaves? Then I brought it home.
I feel like Calvin: "There's Treasure EVERYWHERE!"
