Right now the entire area around Newtown Creek is intriguing-looking. It's covered in green.
The creek is very low, almost low enough to cross. But not quite. Ellie can wade and even paddle about.
The knotweed is totally overgrown, and quite messy.
With the river so low, everything stinks to high heavens.
Naturally, the animals don't care.
One could almost walk to the city, just along the shore. Inland is just overgrown with weeds.
On the other banks, however, the dykes are freshly mown. Perhaps the RiverHag will pay a little visit this week...
