I'm in love

"The bricks have long been erased; the siding, overtaken. Thick waves of grass creep toward porches and consume them. Trees obscure facades and burst through roofs. The dwellings are empty; the families are gone. The onetime homes have been almost entirely reclaimed by nature."

This is one of several photographs taken by James Griffioen,
in a series he calls "Feral Houses".


  1. What a wonderful concept "Feral Houses" is. I love them too. I don't know how I got so far behind on your posts already, but my days are moving like a freight train this summer. Guests this week, and then we travel again on the weekend. But such lovely posts to catch up on! Have a nice weekend!

  2. Thank you so much, Jacqueline. There are a few places in my gardens that could easily go 'feral' if I'm not careful! But I do love the way this looks. Enjoy your summer travels this weekend! It's a lovely time of year for guests and getaways.
