Bloom Where You Are Planted

We don't have mail delivery to our homes here in this tiny Colorado town. So, sometime around noon, most of the town shows up at the Post Office, (it's actually very social). I use to walk , but there is a steep hill on the return...Yes it is the same one on the way down...but much harder to negotiate coming back up, so I drive. I am always amazed this time of year, at the wildflowers that bloom on the side of our rock hill.
With very little soil, or moisture, they still thrive
This one in particular reminds me of the quote, I believe attributed to Mary Englebreit
 "Bloom Where You Are Planted" which is not a bad motto to live by!


  1. Nature sometimes can be more tenacious than humans.

  2. I don't know the quote, but it sounds good. Plants have the strangest places to pop up. We have suddenly some corn in our frontyard. Have no idea where it comes from, Must have arrived with all the winds we have here.

  3. You must be getting some rain there. I'm always amazed by the hardiness of the wildflowers. We should take a lesson from them.
