The Telegraph has an amazing slideshow of images taken by the photographer Vincent Bousserez in Strasbourg, France. Bousserez says that the city hasn’t used any pesticides since 2007, and that, “little by little, nature took back the urban space.

This is what you get when you plant an avocado pit. this tree is six years old, its about fourteen feet high and these are the mature fruits its produces… completely inedible little seed pods. i looked it up and i guess an avocado or mango tree that produces a good fruit is somewhat rare, and seeds from that tree may not grow a tree that produces a similar avocado or mango fruit. Commercially they graft branches from a tree that produces a good fruit onto a different tree’s stump, replacing its branches which didnt produce as good of a fruit, and basically clone a good tree a bunch of times on a farm.
