Let’s say you are getting off the exit at Paper Mill Road off 309, Springfield Township. You look to your right as you come up to the light.
You look some more.
You look some more. What is that dangling from the branches of that tree? Some new kind of fruit, just now revealed by the leaves falling?
Look one more time.
OK, I’ll explain. Behind that fence someone had planted gourds in a garden. The vines left home and traveled up that tree perched in the no-man’s land at the highway exit. Gourds like to hang as they grow, so the vine made a great decision.
I love seeing the triumph of ingenuity and the motivation of hope, no matter who is exercising it!
