Even A Stone Wall

Everything seems to be late this year. Here we are approaching May and in many places fresh shoots are just beginning to emerge. But when those shoots decide it is time to face the outside world they tend not to let anything get in their way. Even a stone wall.

Yes plants can be so strong to move stone like that out of the way. I have a brick liner on my pond and the field lies like to topple them into the water. Nice sunny wall.

We had a hand built wall put in several years ago, to hold up our terrace. My girlfriend, a Master Gardener, told me to put dirt in the nooks and crannies & plant seeds of viney things which will eventually encircle and protect the wall. I did, they are, I keep them trimmed and it is beautiful.

The awesome power of seems the leaves knew how fine they'd look against the stone background.
