The picture above illustrates emphatically that where is a will to survive, nature will find a way.
As I mentioned last week, this has been an extraordinarily good year for jonquils. They have spread and they have flourished. Our front yard has produced a particularly bountiful crop this year. More jonquils than ever and they are ever spreading out.
But this beats all.
Nancy noticed that one jonquil buried beneath a large ceramic pot saw a little daylight through the inch and a half hole at the bottom (for drainage) and emerged through the small opening to spread its petals and blossoms. That pot has been in that same spot for several years, but as the jonquils moved sideways, a. new plant. found itself cut off from light.
But where there’s a will, the plant found a way. Another hearty flower came up from the side of the pot, not having a hole from which to emerge.
Occasionally, on a sheer rock cliff, you’ll see a lonely cedar tree and you’ll also see flowers and weeds blooming through cracks in asphalt.
Nature is amazing, indeed.
