There was something about this alleyway off Fred Grant Square in downtown Barrie that caught my attention. Now that I have the time to consider it intellectually, it's got to be the tree and the grass in it. Generally speaking, most alleys with which I'm familiar are thoroughly paved and nothing can grow there. Here, it's almost as if there's one last little surviving part of the primeval forest that the city was just built around.
