Suburban spring.

The moss in the recently-limed lawn is growing thicker and greener and angrier,

Pigeons at the mall are arranging nests beneath the unblinking stare of a plastic owl,


And the shopping carts have returned to their spawning ditch.

If shopping carts multiply, how come there's never enough at the store? Oh, guess that in that ditch. Hello from a "southern" neighbor. I came over because of your interesting blog title. Nice blog.
