Senescent beauties

My posts have been far too urban of late. There's been concrete in excess and hardly a plant to be seen. It's a shame, because nature and buildings can mix beautifully, if they are allowed to do so.
These elegant houses near Fanling are a case in point.

The Hong Kong countryside is sprinkled with these beautiful decrepit gems, usually glimpsed through masses of untended foliage. I'm convinced that the only reason I'm not a novelist is because I don't live in one!
