The world is too much with us; late and soon,
Getting and spending, we lay waste our powers,
Little we see in Nature that is ours;
We have given our hearts away, a sordid boon!

When I was visiting an abandoned army baracks a month or so ago, I saw a sight very similar to this. A tree had started to grow right through an old open cement window and take over the room. It was a striking image and I tried to get a picture with my phone, butit turned out fuzzy. While perusing urban spelunking websites today, I found this picture. I guess it tells it's own story. Having never been a fan of big buildings, I can't help cheering the tree on.
