Reach For The Stars

O IS FOR?

AGAINST THE ODDS!

Isn't it amazing how plants grow in all sorts of weird and wonderful places? On a recent outing to Liverpool we observed these specimens on a city centre roof top. Do click on the photo to see how much is growing up there.

Why not go over to ABC Wednesday now for more opportune observations on the letter O.

  4. Amazing isn't it? There used to be a samll tree growing out of the roof of Colchester castle that had self seeded itself, I guess it's long gone now, but the children were always fascinated by it.

  8. Hi Anna, That was quite an extraordinary "capture" - personally, I would not like to be assigned the job of weeding that roof!

  10. This proves that plants just want to grow, we don't always have to tend them and mollycoddle them.

  11. Dear Anna, this reminds of men who get hair sprouting from their nostrils and ears as they get older! Guess it happens to old buildings, too. lol

  12. So true! And, a testimony about 'if there is a will, there is a way'.

  14. I often hit O on the keyboard instead of zero, and zero has been the night temperature these last couple of days....

  15. I always like to see the plants growing in walls up old castles, and there are many up the ancient walls round Durham Cathedral.
