21 Photos Of Nature Winning The Battle Against Civilization


You might have to plant the flowers in your backyard to see some green action, but plants will grow from just about anywhere if you give them enough time. If you abandoned your home today and returned many years later, you might find trees growing right out of your bedroom walls, and plants the size of beanstalks shooting straight up out of your floorboards.

These man-made objects, buildings, and entire cities are no match for the rapid growth of plant life. Check out these unbelievable photos of nature wining the battle against civilization.
