Between a Rock and a Hard Place . . .


I saw this beauty along the street when I was out on a walk last weekend, and I had to run home for my camera.

It reminds me of my current favorite quote: You are confined only by the walls you build yourself.

Who knew that a little pink flower could be a hero? ♥

    • You’re very welcome, Christine! And what important work you do! I didn’t figure out what I wanted to do when I grew up until my thirties, so I wish I would have had someone like you! 🙂

    • I love that plant, too! I have a tin washtub that has been handed down in the family, and this is the only kind of plant that will grow in there. In fact, I use that tub of moss rose as a backdrop for lots of my photos on my blog! 🙂 And that quote is definitely a keeper! 🙂

  1. My father-in-law cares for the plants at the church building and had hung two petunias by one of the side doors a couple of years ago. They seeded and now each year little petunias pop up in the cracks between the pavement and the landing. It’s really amazing! Thanks for sharing your little inspiration! I needed something nice this morning.

    • I wish I could see them! And what an important job your father-in-law has! I always admire the beautiful plants around our church and think of the people who quietly slip in to take care of them so the rest of us can enjoy them! 🙂

    • Thank you, Lauren! And I think my neighbors are starting to get used to me doing strange things with my camera . . . jogging down the street and bending over to photograph the curb . . . hanging aprons on my fence and tote bags in my trees . . . 🙂

  2. There is one spot I got by often on my way into town. It is along the street in a parking area facing the lake. There is not a single spot of dirt to be found yet this one blue flowered plant has thrived coming out of the small crack between the pavement and where a utility pole meet. I always smile when I see it and think that the tough will always survive.

  3. I have a similar photo of a little tree growing out from under the tower of the stone Cathedral where I went to university. I was impressed by the power of life.
