Can't really beat an old brick wall for showing things off to advantage. Well spotted and captured as usual.

Hello Adrian.

There's a chance, I think, that these plants will, one day, be the end of this wall.

Ferns aren't too bad. Russian Vine is the killer and Ivy is not far behind. Outlive thee and me!

There's an awful lot going on in this wall. A lot of buddleia has been cut out of it too. (I think the woody remains down and to the left of this fern (facing the picture) is from buddleia.)

Yes I'm a fan of brick walls as well

Hello Mo.

Bricks weather so interestingly, don't they?

Round here, a lot of the new houses have been built with bricks which weep black tar and it's so sad to see them getting 'worse' rather than 'better' with age.

I hope it doesn't destroy the wall any time soon. I love that picture. Very lovely.

Hello Debbie

There's so much of interest in this wall - and it's crucial that it continues to stand. It isn't a garden wall, it's a wall with a path on top and the path runs along in front of a terrace - the front doors open onto the path. If the wall goes, the path goes and - well I hope the houses don't go too!
