Sawtooth Waves IRL

Or: Horticulture at work

I was mostly struck by the quiet irony of the word “plant” on the sign. Only later, when I got home from my walk, did I connect the orange and white angles on the sign to the angles at the top of the fence, and how the top of the fence casts a serrated shadow on the sidewalk. (Someone on Twitter subsequently pointed out that the sawtooth could, itself, be a musical score.)
