|You've got to love the tenacity of |
flowers that spring up outta the cracks in the cement

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

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.
