The Crack In The Cement Flower That Refuses To Give Up and Die Even In The Middle of November

You've got to love the tenacity of
flowers that spring up outta the cracks in the cement
and keep on growing and blooming halfway through November

They just seem to throw caution to the wind and
proceed to grow defying nature and natural odds.

I watered them regularly just like my other flowers
that I planted this past summer
never thinking they'd last this long

....And here they still are, the runts of the litter, who defy-ed all odds by

springing up from a crack in the cement.
 All my other flowers have long since died due to frost. But these flowers growing from out of a cement crack  are so hardy, they refuse to give up.  They are not mums.  I did not plant them there. They just kinda showed up one day out of the crack.

Now they are a welcome reminder of this past summer's color and garden.

The Last Garden Flowers Of The Season Still Blooming on November 4....Amazing

 None of these flowers are Mums.  That alone is enough to make me wonder how did they last so long.

These flowers have made it till today frost free and very alive

Till Spring and Summer I'll savor these flowers color and the warmth they bring

    These are the last of flowers out of my garden still blooming today that I picked before the cold gets them...I'll savor their bloominess till they shrivel up in the vase and die and I'll keep them around just to re- remind myself of next years garden, come spring.  Does every gardener already have their heads into next year's garden at the beginning of November? Just wondering.
