Yesterday day morning Meg and I helped with the roadside trash pick for the Orange County Radio Amateurs Club. It was a long over due task so we met them early in the morning and joined a group of about 10 or 12 people. Below is the trash we picked up from about a mile of road in Orange County, NC.
Funny trash tells a lot about people. There were no healthy items along the road, no water bottles or other juice cans. What we found were soda and beer bottles and cans, alchol bottles big and small, skoal tins, fast food wrappers and cups and junk food wrappers.
Since I was a kid I've hoped people would stop littering, but it will never end. I know now that the people that are littering are not people who eat and drink healthy. Nothing we picked up would be in our diet at all except a beer once and a while.
Clematis crispa I think. It was sprouting up in the grass along where the highway department mows. Not quite filled out in color yet. It was a delight to find.
