A Hawthorn in blossom and a rogue Laburnum competing for space and sunlight whilst creating the most dramatic display in a garden that has gone completely wild.
You can see quite a few gardens in this state in West Norfolk, gardens that have been neglected and have laid siege to the house, surrounding the building with overgrown and rampant bushes and shrubs.
Then there are the other wild gardens where there was once a cottage that is now a ruin but nature has taken its cue and overrun everything. Shrubs and plants that were once carefully pruned have returned to their natural state and fight for light with the 'wild' bushes and weeds.
Nature will always beat the gardener. Eventually.
