Life Within


What grows around us....

General Cemetery, Nottingham.  Tree growing around tombstone.:
Death, where is thy sting?

Encases us....

Life grows in and through


and grows from within....
I love this photo of a tree growing through the bed of an old abandoned truck. Lots of character.:
Life keeps going.
So we can live large.

  1. That first one is just amazing. I've never seen a tree growing around a tombstone.

  2. Life grows, and seasons change, nothing stays the same. Not even a tree branching out....greetings!

    1. Nature takes over if left to its own devices.

  4. That's kind of funny. However, the 2nd image is unnerving. I've had nightmares where roots are coming to get me...

    1. There is a horror movie like that, roots reaching up from ground and pulling people in.

  5. One of the things I love about trees is how they can and will grow almost anywhere.

  7. Amazing photographs especially your first one, but nature will keep on ... I sometimes wish more of us would work with it and not against it!

    All the best Jan

    1. I have never seen something like this. Of course, these amazing nature resulted from a hundreds of years, mainly in Europe. We can claim the truck as our own.

  8. The truck photo I can kind of understand, but the other two are somewhat surprising. The grave must not have had any visitors for years--either that or they were amazed about the growth of the tree and it is pretty amazing.

    I recall in the old warehouse district in Knoxville, TN where I used to work when I was still in college, there was an old abandoned building that had a tree growing out of the wall on the third floor. I wish I had taken a photo of it. That building is now long gone.
