Rednesday


I have not participated in Rednesday in awhile. I have been out RED searching and found a few things to share. However. I have been keeping up with Sue at http://suelovescherries.blogspot.com and her many red friends.


This is a little red flower I spotted driving down the highway. How it is surviving and doing so well is hard to comprehend. It is in concrete along the busy hot highway. Nature does amazing work.

That is amazing how that is growing there. I have grass that will grow on the driveway or street, but sometimes does not do well in the yard.

What a great pop of red. Amazing spot for it to be growing.

What a gorgeous Cardinal Flower! I have tried to get that and butterfly weed (aslepia) to bloom here in my garden, but they die!!! GO out along I-75 from Ohio to Georgia and there they grow in.......rock...concrete.....

I always wonder the same thing when I see a lone little flower growing in between cracks of cement. Great shot!

Sherry from Alabama said...

Awesome! You know what? That pretty little flower wouldn't have been near as noticable in a field with 100's more just like it. I wonder, is there a lesson for us in this brave little flower?
