The signs typically feature birds, flowers, leaves or symmetrical geometric designs within a circle. There is some debate as to why they originally did this. Some contend that it was an interpretation for Fraktur, a highly stylized folk art used to decorate family records and other important documents.

Honeysuckle was brought to America to help with soil erosion, however it has done the exact opposite. Aside from soil erosion the Asian honeysuckle bush was thought to be a great plant that someone could landscape with and put into their gardens. In an article posted nu Nature.org they discuss the thoughts of Purdue Extension forester Ron Rathfon and he claims that this bush was heavily planted from the 1950s to the 1970s around the state. Wildlife agencies promoted this plant and claimed it was a “great ornamental” plant for in your home and for landscaping (Rathfon, 2016). Further studies have been done on this plant and according to the Indiana Department of Natural Resources the biggest downside of the honeysuckle bush is the fact that it grows so dense that it covers everything
The poem considers the illusion of war as glamorous, and stresses the violence of battle. The writer, Owen, also illustrates what impacts the war could bring to an individual, and the permanent loss of physical ability. ‘‘Refugee Blues’’, by W.H. Auden was written a few months before the outbreak of the Second World War. ‘Refugee’ emphasises their escape from persecution, their loss of identity,
