Caged Nature

I took a stroll trough the city a few days back and was able to wander the grounds of a local vocational school. The school was closed due to COVID19 so I had the space for myself. I really enjoy it when I can explore urban places that are empty. So in a sense this pandemic has offered me quite some opportunities which I then was unable to exploit as I also did not want to use public transportation to get to those places. Unfortunately.

The place in front of the main entrance was built with these grey stones. They do not look different on a color picture. Every 15 meters or so they had omitted some stones and presumably planted something. All that was left was weeds and grass. I thought maybe they wanted to save money on maintaining a lawn or trees but they also had lawn with a path and benches around. A strange landscaping decision. I immediately called it Caged Nature. But fascinating nonetheless.
