abandoned greenhouse - revisitedTuesday, June 02, 2015
Back in January I shared photos of an abandoned greenhouse that Jeff, Brandon, and I visited. (See here) Although I loved the photos I got on that visit I was really excited to go back in the spring and see it all grown up. Last week I had that opportunity.
As we approached the greenhouse the three of us each let out an audible noise of excitement about how insanely green the place was. We even questioned how plausible it actually was to photograph since it looked so overgrown. Would we even be able to move around with all the vines, trees and greenery? Funnily enough once inside I was a bit underwhelmed with the growth. It wasn't until I got home and looked at the photos from the last visit that I realized how much more green the place was. Inside, surrounded by all these plants, it's less like a greenhouse and more like a jungle. Save for the broken glass and pieces of metal peeking through in certain places it's easy to forget what this used to be.
We read a few different accounts from people that had also visited. They said to watch out for foxes, coyotes, and other wildlife. So I entered with my fingers crossed, I wanted to see animals in here so bad. The pictures would have just been amazing. Alas, I didn't see anything more than a quick orange cat who wouldn't let me within 25 feet of him.
I'm hoping to get back here in the fall too, of course! It's so much fun to be able to compare photos and see how it changes. Plus this place covered in shades of red, orange, and yellow has to just be magical.
