Russian poplars overshadow
the old apple.

987: Saplings.

[At my friend's farm we recently took a walk out to an old clearing that was once a garden containing a small section that had been an orchard of fruit trees. The garden had last been tended over twenty or thirty years ago. These days the clearing is full of wild saplings and suckers. We made our way through the new growth and eventually my friend was able to find one of the old apple trees. It was still growing but was obviously struggling against invading predators.]

Life does struggle to survive regardless of the weeds and vines. Good one "veggie-burger"!!

I love the addition of the word "Russian" here. Had you simply said "poplars", it wouldn't be the same.

i'd say the human world is much like that, too...

John: Thanks, we aren't alone, eh?

Pat: Right, for some reason, the weeds seem hardier. :-) Thanks.

Aurora: Da! Actually they really were Russian Poplars. Thanks.

Polona: That's for sure!
