The Earth Reclaims a Rolls Royce

There is an abandoned house a few miles from mine on the way to the post office in Callaway. This house has Ivy climbing the sides, brush covering the the pathway to the front of the house and no apparent signs of residency. Every day I drove by this I caught a glimpse of metallic sheen amongst the greenery. One day when I pulled over to investigate I discovered two Rolls Royce's enveloped in Ivy and an older mercedes which had been left standing so long the tires had begun to sink into the ground.
