Growing in a dark place


Outside my Windows this is the only thing growing.An unknown tree has regrowth from a cut branch.It has buckled the gravel they have tarmacced over the root ball.
Unlikely growth is an inhospital enviroment.Yet the tree is growing still, roots reaching into the earth through gravel and tarmac..
Back to work for me now all day.More posts soon.

That looks like a maple maybe. Ilove this kind of stuff, where plants are stubborn, and will grow despite all the hardships. You might want to post this to May's festival of the trees, the theme is "Trees in Concrete".

I took more photos today Salix tree.I love the plants and trees that grow against the odds.They have found Orchids growing on american freeways, and on bridges. The wind blows the seeds skywards and they serepditiously land and germinate!:)

Sycamore, surely. Often viewed as a pest in the wrong location, but its nature taking its cource, right? Wondeful trees when they can grow fully.
