Overgrown on K Street

This shot is a re-run, but I thought it made for an appropriate follow-up to yesterday's protest/rally. The photo doesn't really capture the full effect here. What you have is a gap space entirely filled in with green growth & topped off with a weathered flag. This always reminds me of photos of kudzo in the south. This is on K Street in late May of last year. Below is a closer-up shot.

I always liked seeing the large flag on display when I drive down that street, but I do think the time has come to retire that particular flag - you can see through it in several places. Just for kicks, I looked up the relevant provision in the Flag Code. "The flag, when it is in such condition that it is no longer a fitting emblem for display, should be destroyed in a dignified way, preferably by burning." 4 U.S.C.A. § 8(k).

Whenever I drive by that place I think of it as the "Marine House" because I can't help but think the occupant was a Marine.
