That reminds me Blakey, the most unusual plant growth photo I have is a rather large and very lush looking fern growing inside this abandoned railway coach herehttp://www.flickr.com/photos/phill_dvsn/2551341135/I'm amazed just how well it's flourished in there
My flickr pictures are herehttp://www.flickr.com/photos/phill_dvsn/Because lunacy was the influence for an album. It goes without saying that an album about lunacy will breed a lunatics obsessions with an album - The Dark side of the moon!

There's nothing like keeping the past alive - it makes us relieved to reflect that any bad times have gone, and happy to relive all the joyful and fascinating experiences of our own and other folks' earlier days.

I've just remembered I have another set of photos, my tree monster set showing trees growing in the most unusual places, mostly devouring man made objects herehttp://www.flickr.com/photos/phill_dvsn/sets/7 ... detail/The power of mother nature is amazing at times.

To add to plants growing in unusual places I took this photo on July 25 2014 showing a buddleia (?) growing high up on the wall of the disused Lyons works on Templar Lane. I was amazed at how it managed to grow so well there and seems to be surviving! I shall post a zoomed-in view of the plant in my next post.
