there's a spot on my way to work where weeds and metal have been duking it out for the whole of summer.
nature will almost run away with a win when the mower people (who must be working for supporters of fence) come and weed whack nature down so there's always a week or three where nature has to grow back and i bet fence is just really relentless with the taunting during that time.
i know you can do it nature! don't give up! chain link fence is stupid and has no feelings and you are way prettier and you smell nice for the most part!
