The amazing power of colonizing plants

Plants colonizing a tile roof in La Candelaria, Bogotá, Colombia
 It was remarkable to see plants colonizing a couple of (very old) tile roofs in the old colonial district of La Candelaria in Columbia's capital city. 

It meant that 1) enough organic matter had accumulated that seed germination and establishment had occurred, and 2) there was enough for these plants to actually flower (and probably fruit), too.

Remarkable, actually
