Common Cents

old wood fence

A little patch of wild grass,

Some flowers draped across the fence,

Times are hard; dollars obsolete,

So we decorate with our common cents.

About the Image: I saw this exterior fence while walking today, and I just had to take a pic. The simplicity of it, and the fact that it “almost” looks staged, really caught my eye. I’m pretty sure that’s a bougainvillea creeping out of someone’s backyard. My son has been fist-fighting one of those plants since he moved into his house a few years ago. Apparently they have a strong will to survive!
