Wareham - Bits & Pieces 6/8

Something that caught my eye. Sometimes it’s worth looking up and when I did I found this cottage with a fledgling tree growing from the fine old chimney.

Its mistletoe...getting under it and practice your lip-wrestling, Brian.
Brian Walbey: I'll have to work out how to get on the roof firstsmile
Isn't that funny! Amazing where plants will grow!
Brian Walbey: They almost seem to have minds of their own Elizabeth.
Good eye Brian... we hat two Maple trees in our yard in Ottawa and there were seedlings growing out of the gutters along the roof all the time....petersmile
Brian Walbey: Some plants will seem to be able to grow anywhere.
nice diagonal work in this shot
Looks like buddlia to me. I might of cropped out some of the roof on each side
Brian Walbey: Your right Richard, I could crop the right a bit and leave the left so as not to have the chimney central and a nice lead in of roof from the left. Sorry, Clubby again!

Once someone climbs up to paint the window frame, Brian, they'll probably root it out! smile
Brian Walbey: Looking at that window frame Ginnie I suspect it has been like that for a while so there might still be plenty of life for the plant yet.

You wonder how these things obtain any nutrient?
Brian Walbey: I've often wondered that myself Chris.
Plants are amazing Brian, aren't they! Great capture!
Brian Walbey: They seem to grow in the most unusual of places don't they.
They need to do some weeding quick!
Brian Walbey: Indeed they do.

They will be sorry if they don't do something about it - well seen Brian.
Brian Walbey: I guess it could weaken the chimney if it really got its roots well grown in.

The gutteridge looks neatly tucked under and in reasonable shape Brian.
Brian Walbey: Indeed it does Chad.

Something I don't always do, Brian - very worthwhile
Brian Walbey: I'm not a photographer who looks up a lot, I just happened to notice it from the other side of the street when I was taking the two cottage pictures from earlier this week.

This could be a Chaddish photo - I like your funny observation.
Brian Walbey: Chad has already enthused over the gutteridge Philine, not a word about the plant !
Time to call in the chimney sweep, Brian. Great catch!
Brian Walbey: Or a high level gardener Beverly.
Buddleja? It seems to grow anywhere!
Brian Walbey: It's surprising where plants will grow.
Is that the butterfly bush/plant? It grows all over brickwork, given the chance!
Brian Walbey: Bill seems to think it is Buddleja Martin.
Looks like Buddleia to me, thats seems able to grow anywhere, still it brings in the butterflies. Nice capture.
Brian Walbey: Thanks John, Buddleia seems to be the favourite.
It's an olive tree, they're all over knowadays Brian...
Brian Walbey: An Olive Tree is one of several suggestions Juan.

Probably as a result of a bird dropping a seed maybe? It;s surprised how something like this will grow. Well spotted.
Brian Walbey: Plants do grow in the most unusual places don't they.

I think Mr T is right with the buddleia, great butterfly enticer, just a shame they will not see it from that little window. smile
Brian Walbey: The occupants could always get a ladder out Linda.
There's going to be be some work needed there soon, Brian.
Brian Walbey: The window does look a bit tatty doesn't it.
Well spotted Brian, a great shot.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Sally.
