I’ve mentioned a catwalk that enters the creek area from my street but there’s another catwalk around the corner, That catwalk takes you to the opposite side of the creek. It’s the one I used to get into trouble over when I took it coming home from elementary school. I wonder why it was such a big deal?
That catwalk was not so overgrown when I walked it back in the day. They used to cut down all the new growth leaving it wide open. I’m glad they decided to let it go back to a more natural habitat. I mean where else would I see something like this so close to home:
Or even this lovely swallowtail?
Okay so, I would probably see the swallowtails as they usually come to my garden every summer but who’s to say if they would without all those Dame’s Rockets it seems to love feeding on so close by. It is a lot more fun to explore this overgrown creek and would have been so much better when we played hide and seek back in school.
