Nice chimneys. You have to wonder how long they will last with the roots growing down into them and the water following close behind.

I seen thing growing here or there on the roof I see a 6 foot tree in a valley, sorry no pictures. I came across this in NY.

Also take a look at the post Tile Valley Rounded to see more of the building.

Let it grow.

It's been known for years for the tree growing out of the top of the tower. It isn't the first tree.

On the way back from the seminar we went North thru rural Kentucky and into SE Indiana. This was the clocktower in Greenburg, Indiana which is about 30 miles North of Kentucky. The rest of the building is in great shape, except for this tower roof. Kind of funny to see a large tree growing out of a roof.

It kind of reminds me of a scene from the "Life after people" show on cable.

A 100 foot high clock tower in SE Indiana in the pouring rain. Is there a problem?
