hint of things to come

There are so many things to like about vines growing on the sides of buildings. They form a habitat–almost an ecosystem–inhabited by small animals and insects. They bring the natural world closer to the people who live or work in the buildings. And hey, they’re pretty.

But there’s also the fact that growing vines are a reminder that the natural world is always trying to reclaim its territory. Given time and opportunity, these vines will pull these bricks down and reduce this lovely window to lovely rubble.
