I am always surprised about how in spite of all we do to contain them or repel them, plants will find a way to make their way into the world.

For Cee’s FOTD

About lifelessons

My blog, which started out to be about overcoming grief, quickly grew into a blog about celebrating life. I post daily: poems, photographs, essays or stories. I've lived in countries all around the globe but have finally come to rest in Mexico, where I've lived since 2001. My books may be found on Amazon in Kindle and print format, my art in local Ajijic galleries. Hope to see you at my blog.

      I was just going to do the first shots that I had taken while in the pool. Luckily my audible books that I listen to while exercising in the pool are on my phone so I always have it handy. Then I had to go out and do a few more shots in front of my house.

    The pots are pretty much glorified dirt so I can see how they work their way through. That might actually look pretty once fully engaged with greenery. The unstoppable flora here is grass, which is both beautiful and quite pesky.

    Thanks for posting those, I love them and see many such on my place where the see much less water that you have.. There is one beautiful flower on my place that bunches like a boutonniere and grows out of the rock cracks called Texas Pinks, they actually will grow in the middle of a high traffic road~!.. they need very little water and I have been told that they actually multiply in desert areas where there are no bugs of animals to cross pollinate them.

      My mother used to call a flower in our garden “Carnation Pinks” I wonder if they are the same flower? I think perhaps they were also called ‘Sweet Willliams.” I love those romantic old names for flowers.

        No this has a different growth pattern from the carnation. It is also called Mountain Pink, or actually (Centaurium beyrichii) Here is the Texas Highways write up on them.
        Thrives on the barren, gravel-strewn hills of Central Texas and westward. The flowers, which bloom May through August, branch to form a nearly perfect bouquet. Called quinine weed by pioneers, the plants were dried and used to reduce fevers.
