Seattle Siesta

Minimal blog posts until I'm back from Seattle. This city and its environs are steeped in invasives like Scotch broom (Cytisus scoparius), Himalayan blackberry (Rubus discolor) and English ivy (Hedera helix). It's hard for me to see how park officials at Mercer Island can even think about trying to eradicate English ivy from public land, when the majority of homeowners there have at least some part of their land landscaped with it. Here is a photo from a Mercer Island park, showing the dense English ivy understory in a forest:
