Marash Girl has to admit that she has a sense of delight when she sees nature conquering the concrete and macadam as grass and flowers grow through cracks in walkways and roads, but seeing the trees growing from the face of the church gave me pause.
I was reminded of the childhood story of the little boy who never washed and one day awoke to find radishes growing on his face! That one shook me up a bit.
But so did seeing the plants lodged in the mortar between the blocks of granite at the edge of the roof of this historic structure. At first delighted, I soon took to wondering whether or not these plants could, in fact, destroy the face of the building.
