It's kind of pretty to see but it probably not good for the wall.

Beautiful!! I love your capture for the day -- as always! So colorful! Hope your week is going well, Jose!!

You just can't keep a good plant down!

Reminds of a huge brick wall I saw a few days ago - grass and weeds were growing through the mortar in numerous places!

It is sad and beautiful at the same time...

Arija said...

Such a pity even if it is a pretty plant.

Dina said...

Come on little plant, you can do it!

Plants are tenacious when they need to be. This would be proof of that.

There could not be a better illustration of the beauty of decay.

Ha! Now I know we share a very similar climate. The same plant grows from beneath the streetlamp outside my house.

Some plants are so amazing and strong.

It makes a very nice photo, though it's regrettable that the wall is deteriorating.

That looks like a plant we call Japanese Knot Weed and yes it does grow rather too vigourously for comfort in my wild garden, Looks like it might be a bit of an invader there too.

It is probably not good for the tile, but it contributes to a "shabby chic" beauty for the wall.
