August 21st – Returning from Birmingham, the train unexpectedly terminated at Tame Bridge due to a line fault or something, maybe the elastic band snapped.
I couldn’t be bothered with the ride home up through Walsall so hopped on the Tame Valley Canal and then home via Rushall Junction, Park Hall and Aldridge.
Passing through a nondescript bit of towpath near the Birmingham Road, a flash of bright, vivid orange caught my eye.
A gorgeous par of feral marigolds, just trying to make me happy.
They succeeded in their aim.
