Tree growing around a tombstone in the Cimetière de Montmartre

I lived right the corner from the Cimetière de Montmartre for a couple years, but I just ran across this tree growing around a tombstone a couple days ago.

To find it, just enter the cemetery, walk back under the overpass and a bit to the left and you'll find the tomb of Emile Zola up above, staring down at you from a higher level of the cemetery. Walk up the steps in front of Zola and straight back behind his tomb, and you'll find this not too far back there.

I love finding scenes of nature reclaiming what once belonged to it. Neat, huh?
