Warm Water Cove

While I was down around Heron's Head Park, I stopped by Warm Water Cove, another nearby park, to see what's going on there. Not much. Regardless, these little waterfront parks have tremendous potential and are a great resource for the future. Just a quick look around today. We'll come back in 10, 20 years and say, "We remember when..."

The smokestack exerts quite the presence.

There has been a little gardening here, although Oxalis pes-caprae has overtaken the beds. When the park does get developed, I assume all of the soil will have to go.

I'd get rid of most of the trees too. Although some are worth keeping.

Interestingly, Gaillardia has escaped the beds and seems to be holding its own in the general landscape.

That's encouraging, isn't it?

God I hate Oxalis. Bane of my backyard.

Not much consolation, but oxalis is edible. Kinda lemony.

Also, bands used to have generator shows in that park. I'm not sure if they still happen, but they were always really fun.
