Museum of street semiotics: getting the papers

Some pics from my constitutional to get the papers and visit the sea food van.

Plague of Taggers! The end wall of this house is perpetually tagged, I really feel for the owners. The wall is rendered so needs painting, so they paint it white which brightens a gloomy local corner. But the scum who tag everywhere have to dribble their visual urine on it like the graphically incontinent mice they are. Next time someone (from Kirsty Wark down) gushes about how wonderful Banksy is may be you could pass them a pot of matt white so they can paint over this crap one more time.

Where the wild flowers bloom.
On a much brighter note this patch of ground if left uncut by the council regularly blooms with 8-9 species of wild flowers including delicate trefoils full of bees. Nothing massively rare but much more pretty than any planted Lewisham in Bloom roundabout, no doubt the gang mowers will be around next week to cut them down.

La Lucha Continua! Presumably Unison aren't cutting the mustard in Deptford so we've brought in the old school parties let's hope the rest of them don't show up and it all kicks off again.

When I was working in Birmingham in a job which involved sureptitiously watching people in parks, it used to cheer me slightly that following the swathes of daffodils came plants like yarrow, buttercups and mouse-ear, never mind all the grasses actually being able to flower. The contractors couldn't mow them because it'd spoil the daffs for next year. Botanical insurrection!
