Fresh Sprout

While I was out walking Molly yesterday, I found this fresh, spring shoot pushing it's way determinedly through the pavement. I lay down on the sidewalk to get this one...hoping no one was watching out their window and calling 911!

I'm in awe of's amazing strength, perseverance and flexibility. Nature's ability to overcome seemingly impossible conditions and find it's way back to balance is so inspiring. Equally heartening is it's easy and graceful beauty when treated with tender loving care.

This fresh little sprout has much to teach us.


  1. perfectly fresh! you're right...we can learn so much from nature!

  2. Don't you just love it when plants find a way to push through seemingly insurmountable odds?!! Great picture, Kate!

  3. ...I find myself always inclined to take a photo of those plants growing in cracks of rocks and piles of stones...they are always a wonder to see....Love the texture you have given this...
