Isn't it funny how the plants and animals keep breaking through our barriers, no matter how much we try to discourage them?

It's a great day in St. Louis, but I heard rumors of the "S" word for Monday.

Is this a good thing or a bad thing? Sad to me, but then again, I like human civilization. (I also enjoy nature, but would rather they be segregated.)

Photography tip: Wait for better light, usually on thinly overcast days, or after sunrise, or before sunset.

I am fond of watching Nature take back over. Thanks for sharing the pictures!

Proving once again that dandelions will grow anywhere! Even in concrete. Well... sorta.

Beautiful shots. I am so ready for spring.

I think I love the picture of the tree behind the fence the best. It is truly a lovely picture.

Happy WW!

This is the kind of thing I grew up with. Even a little bit of nature inspires me and gives me peace of mind.

Nice photos!

I like nature. But I like civilization. Parks are nice. But unkempt and dilapidated urban areas are not my cup of tea.

I love your views! I love that you find nature in amongst the concrete. :)
