This greenhouse is part of an abandoned nursery in my neighborhood. I drive by it all the time and have been just dying to get in there and take some pictures!
I didn't actually go into it this time (because I was wearing flip flops and there was lots of broken glass), but I hope to go back and trespass a little more boldly.
I have always been drawn to worn and decaying things - especially buildings. I think that what I like best about them is to see Nature reclaiming space that had been taken from her.
In this greenhouse, that is especially true as the cultivated plants - all the ones that were carefully planted in pots with good dirt and fertilizer - have long since died and the wild ones are running up and down the walls with abandon.
Daily Bliss: driving with the windows down, peeping at the giant, crescent moon
