Life is strong and it can almost take root anywhere.

Would never have know where this was growing if you had not told me.

Love the letters on that drain.

Hello Andy - in this case, the 'anywhere' includes under the road!

Hi Rita. I've been photographing this tree for several months - ever since I saw it down there - and I've always liked the lettering as much as the leaves. Just as well because the tree will have to go some time - before its roots break the drain - but the metal will remain.

Hello Deepak - The tree does well until it sticks its head above the level of the road. Then cars shave off the leaves which stick out. They cut against the grating.
