What's this: a symbol of tenacious Life cornering and exploiting a mostly-forgotten niche in which to thrive and thumb its nose at the gardener? Or is it a cancer, pell-mell egotistically and slowly killing its host and destroying the wall built by the patient stonemason?

I do not know!

Yeah, I'm with you Hazel. Basically. I like the standoff between the plant and the disinterested town workers as presented here.
I'll get some more drawings of it once the weather warms up and it sends out new shoots and leaves.
