Other Rooftops

Atop Kingsland Wildflowers recently, I couldn’t help notice that it wasn’t the only rooftop garden in the area. These neighbors seem to be volunteers, blown in by the wind, deposited by birds, etc. I saw some mosses, perhaps they showed up first? I don’t know what any of these plants are. I’ll take a better eye the next time, and perhaps some binoculars.This island of grasses (hollow right down to the ground?) was swaying in the wind.

Remember the cattails I found on a roof on Furman Street. Curiouser and curiouser.

    I can’t imagine a place where rooftops are the only place for green to grow. What we do to the soil is the worst, seem to think it’s better sterile for roads, empty parking lots, minimal use buildings, empty houses (while people are off at work all day). We take food (and the healthy soil required to grow it) for granted.
