Recycling Collection Truck at Hayashi Kita

On May 5, 2014, a quiet and gloomy holiday here in Ritto, the loudest sound was the loudspeaker of a recycling collection truck that slowly drove around the neighborhood. Such trucks often come on Sundays and holidays. I recorded this one at the Hayashi Kita intersection as it made a loop around the Hayashi neighborhood.

Under the pedestrian overpass I noticed some wild flowers.

This poppy will win no beauty contests, but it’s doing okay considering its location.

I suppose these weeds will be cut by a maintenance crew, but for now they’re surviving and adding a little natural color.
