. . . . . . .

if everyone stopped trimming things that grow around town, i think all of london would be overgrown with wild ivy and climbing plants and green foliage in no time. what a sight that would be.

    these overgrown houses are great – i cannot stop thinking about the mouse that once climbed up to my parents’ flat on the 3rd floor :)

    foliage growing on buildings like this is one of my favorite things, ever :) your pictures are lovely!

    I like the purple-pinkish door in the last picture. It’s sassy–or, dare I say, WILD.

    Have you read The World Without Us by Alan Weisman? It takes the premise that if somehow all human life disappeared from the planet in one fell swoop, plants and animals would takeover so much faster than we can imagine. It’s a fascinating read.

    Love the photos. I’ve seen similar residences with ivy in other states. I am both facinated and amazed by it…and how life creates its own art. Beautiful.

    I hope to have ivy on my house one day. But around here we have TONS of kudzu and I love going for drives to see the [practically] forests of it.

    I love these ivy-covered buildings! I wish we had more of them here in the US! Beautiful photos as always.
