1020. Lodged

Spring wind...
a shopping bag lifts
onto a treetop.

Link with 1019: Bag.

[The yellow plastic bag I saw stuck up in that tree likely blew there over the winter. With the way it was lodged there it is quite possible it will remain so until next winter. A day or so later we were driving in the same area and a little piece of cardboard flew up and stuck right against the rear-view mirror. Stopping, accelerating, and turning sharp corners did nothing to dislodge it. It wasn't till we reached our destination that it finally came off.]

Here in Arkansas, the home of Wal-Mart, we used to see blue bags laying everywhere. They were called "Arkansas tumbleweeds" They got smart, though, and changed their bags to white, like everybody else.

even shopping bags want to fly in spring :)

Maybe it's shopping for leaves...

Stuck. The flight of imagination...

I really like this one.

Andrew: That's very clever of them (and clever to name the blue bags "Arkansas tumbleweeds"). :-)

John: Thanks.

Polona: Yes, I suppose they do. :-)

Pat: Possibly, but it appeared to be stuck in the parking lot.

Borut: Thanks.

Aurora: Thanks.

it's strange
but
even though it's litter
there is something uplifting about the sight of a bag which has "escaped"

I took a photo several weeks ago of the little house sparrow with a piece of plastic bag in her mouth ... for her nest.

The eggs have already hatched and those little guys are peeping and squeaking.... the little nest is next to the patio.

Pamela: So cute! Even a little bit of plastic can serve some purpose. Thanks.
