I love big cities. In particular, I love old architecture and urban decay.
Whenever we travel, or even when we’re just walking around Moscow, most of my photos are of buildings, or parts of buildings, like doors and windows.
Sometimes big cities accommodate nature, in the form of big parks or tree-lined streets. Or there can be big pots or tubs, or garden beds full of beautiful plants and flowers, especially in spring.
But sometimes nature has a mind of its own and decides, without any help from us, where it’s going to exist.
Therefore, sometimes you can find nature in the most unexpected places.
Here are just some of the many examples of nature determined to succeed in the most difficult conditions.
If only I had their strength and determination! Imagine what I could achieve!
This little tree in Vilnius is still alive, if not a little frail, as you can see by these 2 photos taken 5 years apart! I wonder what it will be like next time I visit.
And here are a couple from our street. A little weak and malnourished, but they’re trying really hard to grow up!
Next time you’re out and about, try and spot some trees or plants that are surviving despite all odds. Send me your photos and I’ll add them to this post.
