Here's a closer look, compliments of both digital and optical zoom. It's a park worker spewing toxins (chemical fertilizers) into the Earth. When I first moved to this house, I raised hell over this. They could've used organic, safe pesticides and fertilizers. Eventually, I came to realize that I was only hurting myself with my ranting and raving. Nothing changed except my blood pressure.
Now, this is going to look suspiciously like an attempt to justify my desire to move to an urban neighborhood, but here's the fact: this downtown park (behind the house I'm going to make an offer on) has been known to harbor dandelions. Yep, you read correctly- dandelions! You know what that means, don't you? No chemicals!! Yipee!
