Life always finds a way

Wild greenhouse
What could this be?

While walking on an expanse of empty gravel this sunny afternoon, I noticed a glint of light and a splash of green.

Wild greenhouse
A wild greenhouse!

Moving closer, I found that I’d spotted a ‘natural’, spontaneous, greenhouse!

A collection of small plants are happily growing in the protective shelter of a piece of discarded plastic. What a beautiful example of a microclimate that is too. .

How’s that for opportunism and tenacity?

Wild greenhouse
A whole little ecosystem!
