Quote of the Day: Proverb

“Bloom where you’re planted”

~ Proverb

This alyssum was a volunteer that grew up in a crack in our driveway. It’s the most beautiful alyssum, it’s bloomed prolifically all summer long and it looks much nicer than the ones I started from seed and planted in the flowerbeds. I must try to save some seed from this hardy little plant, I think it had great genes.

Are you ever amazed by the hardiness of some plants?
