LOOKING IN THE SQUARE

A PICTURE RECORDS A MOMENT IN TIME. It will never return, but we have the picture to cherish

A lonely little viola in a concrete crack... . Several years ago, in our ignorance, we planted violas in our front flower garden and now we can't get rid of them. Annually they pop up around the two sides of the house nearest to where they grew, and no amount of weedspraying can discourage them, though it does kill the ones in growth. The seeds seem to hide in the cracks in the soil or the concrete and sprout forth in summer to produce more seeds. They seem to have an exceedingly strong will to procreate and survive. . The little viola above is one of those. But you have to smile at its cheerful face, don't you? .
