Ford Explorer Swallowed by Vines

Centre Avenue on the way home from school.  The lush green growth of summer. 

I turned around after I’d passed it by,

pulled over to the curb, waited until the rush hour cars zipped past.

The reflection on the windshield was so bright, the atmosphere muggy, a bit of haze.

I wonder how long it had been parked there.  It is a second generation Ford Explorer somewhere between 1995-2001according to the front grille as a clue.

When Flat Ruthie was traveling courtesy of friend Shuey, she learned the origin of Kudzu and how it can grow a foot in a day.

The first photo with the red parking sign seems better but why I shot it so close to the edge of the frame is beyond me and I did it just the once.

  1. So funny that just in front of the car in the first photo is the sign for “Street Cleaning!” !!!!! Someone got it off the Street so it would not get a ticket!!!!!!!! 🙂

    • Yes, it is good to turn around and make the effort instead of be regretful later on. Thanks for your good words today Cee.

  2. I agree with several above commenters:

    1) I’m glad you turned around and got the capture. Definitely one you don’t want to regret passing by!
    2) I wonder why the police haven’t intervened yet. Here, this car would have been towed away days ago.
    3) I also hope there is nothing nefarious inside the vehicle.

  3. This looks like a background set for a horror movie , Ruth. Those kudzu vines are a real menace and I hope they find a way to stop them.

Thanks for your visit. It's always good to hear you stopped by.
