Have you ever seen something like this before? I had shared this very tree in an earlier post. Would it surprise you if I told you that the dilapidated building it stuck out from, was actually seven floors tall and that the tree was growing right up there, at the top floor?
While we love old buildings that make for excellent photographs, and there is no dearth of those in Kolkata, the thought of seeing a tree growing out of a wall did seem unusual. My 14-year-old had a few questions that even I had been asking myself.
“How come it’s growing up there?”
“How did it get there in the first place?”
“Is it growing without any soil?”
Someday, hopefully, we may find the answers. But, it is amazing that even broken fragmented walls have the ability to nurture life forms in this way.
Joining Parul today for #thursdaytreelove which is a photo feature on her blog that brings you beautiful trees from different places every second and fourth Thursday of the month. If you would like to play along, post a picture of a tree on your blog and link it back to her post.
