Deck Jumpers

This year my deck has NOT been lined with a dozen flower pots.  Those who know me, will understand why.   That being said, some seeds from flowers long ago removed, have managed to fall over the edge of the deck and get a start within some cracks to be found around the perimeter.  I took my cell phone 2 days ago and photographed some of these upstarts.  I find it compelling to witness how life is so fundamentally driven to find expression.  (and beautifully expressed it is)

I had, earlier in the year, sprayed some weeds near these same cracks.  I’m glad that these plants survived.  It was a pleasant surprise!
