More work was needed on my car at a garage near the bottom of Pape Avenue so I decided to explore the entire length of this street including some nearby laneways while this was being done.
At the conclusion of the post, I will identify it.
One of the most common city weeds is Plantain.
You might more easily recognize it with seed stem attached.
Buds are bursting in the hedges,
Leaves are stirring in the lane,
Everywhere the sap is stirring,
Love returns to life again. – John Dennis (1657–1734)
