Mystery Plant Photo Bomb

The other day, Mabel and I were most please to find the city had started their annual clean up of Dirty Creek! They do this to make the water flow in winter (cause they didn't for a few years and some houses got flooded and the city and golf course got sued!)

While they no longer remove all the North side vegetation (making Mallory and crew very happy!) there were so many partially felled branches from a spring was feeling rather perilous to hike there! There were so many areas to explore...places we simply couldn't get to for safety reasons for months... we were overjoyed. Our hiking buddy and her Hank and Sue Rhodesians joined us and we had a lovely easy hike!
As we started to leave, we noticed a rather strange plant we've never seen before. It had obviously gotten a fresh haircut, courtesy of the city. But, we have no idea what it is and there's nothing like this in the area!
I snapped off a few shots and realize that Miss-No-Photos-Please Mabel had photo bombed every shot!

In Missouri there are volunteers for the Conservation Department called Stream Team. They pledge to keep a designated stream free of litter and debris.
