  5. I am always in awe when I see how Mother Nature reclaims her space! Trees grow in sidewalk cracks, all manner of plants spring up around abandoned houses. She is one determined lady!

  6. I have always said, you can use anything for a container, this is funny. I posted some seeds to give a way, don't know if any would fit your garden, let me know if you are interested.

  11. If humanity disappeared tomorrow I doubt it would take long for our buildings to disappear beneath a cloak of greenery. I find that quite comforting in a strange way.

  14. A speck of dirt will cause something to take a hold and grow. It always amazes me. Around here I see it a lot in the woods. Even the trees are growing on top of solid rock. I do not know how they stay standing.

  15. For goodness sakes. I try to get moss to grow in certain places in my garden and it won't do it. Maybe I will put in a mulch of empty cans and it will grow. Excuse me while I empty a few. tee hee...

  18. Well spotted! Though I know from experience that walking through grass in bare feet suddenly becomes a nasty experience when you tread on a colonised can...
