Ride Down 7th Street

A rogue shower had just passed thru town, and after the sprinkles stopped, a short ride down 7th street sounded like a good idea

That’s the shower down there, but not going that far right now, so all is good  🙂

On the way south on 7th I noticed an interesting plant/weed and made a mental note to photograph it on the return north.

Somewhat amazingly, I remembered to do it  (hard to get anything to stick on teflon ya know)Looks more like it belongs in someone’s garden rather than a ditch bank

No idea what it is

The fuzzy grass seed heads running along the ditch are kinda cool too

Short ride, but definitely scores a 🙂

Very much enjoy all the entries you all have provided -- great to see the everyday cycling venues. Being in eastern Illinois, scenery certainly isn't our forte, but oh well, the roads are normally quiet. Look forward to more and more entries from all of you, I do have a few over on BL -- in Bill's Day Rides, and one journal.

    I wish I could help you what identifying the plant, but I am useless about almost all plants ;’-(. Looks like a nice ride and I can just about smell the rain ;’-).

      Trying to look up plants and they list their scientific name does me no good at all!
      Rode by there this morning, it looks like the flowers are beginning to open, so we will see . . . . if the township guys don’t weed whack it first.

    I think we have some of that plant around here, too. No idea what it is. I do have an app to identify plants, I should use it!

    Nothing like getting out after a shower has passed and the air still smells fresh and the humidity has temporarily gone 🙂
