On further examination I found a small cluster of green shoots minding their own business, seemingly unperturbed by the goings-on. When I mentioned them to the owner he said they'd be there forever. What a wonderful example that man can come and go, but nature will always prevail!

One up for Nature!
While working on a client's property today the ditch-digger machine came round and dug a huge ditch along the roadside, picking up debris, rocks, branches and whatever else was in it's path. After the deed was done I was clearing up the side of the road and noticed further up the hill a tiny patch of green in an otherwise mud coloured landscape.
