This is great! Nature has taken over every nook and cranny; and I love the thought of small children playing around it too. Bomb sites were a great attraction to children during the war, and after, weren?t they! It is wonderfully portrayed in just one wall.

I've lost the plot a bit here....not been paying attention obviously... Are we going on to a WW2 bomb site next door now? If so, there should be purple loosestrife - my Dad said it always grew where a house had been bombed, and it looked like a garden.
Your beautiful creations are more like little glimpses of history - brilliant! Thanks for sharing.

Yes, I kind of chickended out of building the whole of next door so I 'blew it up' as it were.
I've cheated and gone for a willow herb look-alike loosely related to fireweed. Loosestrife is lythrum slicaria, same colourings and roughly the same shape. So it's just a nod to the ever present plant colouring and shape :)
