About Today’s Photo:

Japanese Knotweed is an fast growing invasive species that has taken over many places in Vermont. The Little River that flows along side the Stowe Rec Path is a prime example of a stream that has been largly taken over by the plant. Still, I found this leaf to be quite pretty and a bit abstract as it fades to yellow.
