Vintage landscape: beautiful weeds

“Elizabeth’s Hill, Great Mills vic., St. Mary’s County, Maryland,”  1936-37, Frances Benjamin Johnston, via Library of Congress Prints and Photographs Division.

What would the world be, once bereft
Of wet and of wildness? Let them be left,
O Let them be left, wildness and wet:
Long live the weeds and the wilderness yet.
–  Gerard Manley Hopkins, from “Inversnaid”
