Where Nature Dominates

Our neighbor has a tree growing through their house.  I thought it was peculiar until this Spring when the tree bloomed punk-rock neon pink flowers, like an umbrella over their slate-blue house.  This is clearly a tree to build a house around.
In the city, architecture dominates over nature...but here in the county, nature has the upper hand.


  1. Wow, what a great story!!! Fantastic that they just did that. And with your beautiful picture the fairy tale is complete.

  2. Frank Lloyd Wright would delight in your neighbors house! I need to come out soon. The city feels heavy with school shut downs. How can our kids walk to school without being chaperoned by safety patrols? We need trees in our houses and schools in the city.
