Frank Fetch Park

I've been in Frank Fetch Park before, but it's slightly out of the way on little streets in German Village. I tend to forget where it is. I saw a humming bird before it got dark, but he/she/it/bird was moving fast and didn't provide a photo op.

P.S. There was no moon tonight, but the moonflowers came out anyways. According to wikipedia, Datura inoxia is an annual shrubby plant that typically reaches a height of 0.6 to 1.5 metres. Some of these are over 12 feet tall (and still growing fast).

The Washington Post has been such a giant disappointment these last 15 years or so it comes as a shock when they do something good. But there are still great investigative reporters there.
