Spring is in the air and I am taking photos of some of the flowers.
Last Summer, I posted a photo of this hut when the villagers were trying to reclaim from nature.
When I passed by the hut this morning, the sunlight was brilliant.
The hut is fully reclaimed and a cat sat on top of the roof.
Last year, it was still mostly covered with vines.
This is a continued fight between nature and human and human has finally won; but just for now.
The bauhinia has blossomed which brightened up the scene.
Great to show the difference in the hut with the two photos – really interesting.
I SHOULD HAVE TAKEN A PHOTO WITH THE HUT TOTALLY COVERED IN GREEN. Reagrds,
I should have a taken a picture when the hut was totally covered in green. Thanks for the comment!
Reblogged this on ugiridharaprasad.
Thanks for reblogging this on !
Ditto the top comment – great comparison!
Regret that I didn’t take a photo of the whole hut covered with vines!
Love the way you have published this …. before and after – but the nice thing is that it still gives a shelter for someone. So IKEA have said, home is the best place in the world.
Yes, this is what houses are for. Thank you, Viveka!
It must have been a lot of work to reclaim the hut.
It may have taken them a year to get rid of the vines! Regards, Michael
The hut in the wild state reminded me of a rock or something natural – it seemed to be so integrated into the nature. Now the cat is the king 🙂
When I first saw the hut, it was completely covered with vines and green in color – it was really a part of nature!
I liked this very much, the photo comparison and especially the recognition of true nature.
Thanks for liking the photo. I think nature will ultimately win!
Amazing the difference the light and the flowering blossoms make to the second photo! Beautiful 🙂
The second one has only 2 major colors; whereas the first one is more colorful. Glad that you like it!
The old farm house on our farm was much the same when we started–totally covered in vines and overgrown with young trees. Now you wouldn’t even know they were there. 🙂
Left alone nature quickly reclaims the work of us humans.
Thanks for sharing this.
Hi Bill, glad to hear from you. Would be glad to hear or see other examples. For this hut, when I first saw it, it was totally covered with vines – unfortunately, I didn’t take a picture. Regards, Michael
Beautiful pictures! This reminds me of the Philippines where my wife grew up. I hope you don’t mind if I use this as desktop wallpaper on my computer.
Hi, you have my permission to use it as a wall paper. Regards, Michael
so refreshing to see signs of Spring, Michael! we’re still very much in the cold.
Hope Spring is just round the corner!
Thanks for sharing this is very special and beautiful
I like doing time series to see how things develop. Regards, Michael
It s a great idea
Lovely to see the positive difference Michael – definitely ‘before’ and ‘after’ photos…
Hi Coral, like to see how things change with time. Thanks for the comment!
My gosh, what a life that would be. It’s like a scene from Robinson Caruso. Are you walking into the forest or do you have to drive to this location? The forest seems almost impenetrable. The bauhinia is wonderful, how amazing to have that as part of the view every morning.
Hi, you have very good imagination. I have to walk to view this place, although it is not far from here. Regards, Michael
The hut looks so cute!
Glad that you like it 🙂
