Field Notes
I'm happy because I'm outside and we can frolic in the sunlight and hopefully get a little bit a suntan. I smell fresh air and paint, because someone was painting the football field.

This stem has swollen joints and the stems grows in a zigzag pattern and that is true for the Japanese knotweed.

This bush is about 3 meters tall and has other bamboo plants growing around it. This is also one of the descriptions of the bamboo on the ID card.
