Saturday PhotoHunt - Different.


Today's theme for Saturday PhotoHunt is

Different

On one of my walks I found this small plant growing through the tarmac in the road. It's a quiet road, without much heavy traffic, but just the same I thought this was


DIFFERENT

Happy Hunting.

I got an error message so I'll try again. I hope this isn't a duplicate. Good take on the theme. It is different to see a plant growing through the road. Hope you have a nice weekend.

Very different and such a strong plant to be growing through the tarmac.

What a struggle for the poor little thing. Have a great weekend Dragonstar.

Rach said...

you wouldn't expect to find that in the middle of the tarmac!

Katney said...

Something told me I might find your Photo Hunt early. Any plant growing in unfriendly terrain is different. My different photo will be up later this evening (still Friday here).

Doesn't nature just amaze you! The strength in these tiny plants. Like the gorse regrows after burning and the tiny violets that peek through the scarred ground.

Amazing that it got there in the first place - and then to survive! It must be pretty resilient :)

byrningbunny said...

You know which part of it qualifies as different, in the regions I now live? The tarmac on the road!! lol

That's a great take on the theme! And such a nice unexpected surprise to find something green and growing there!

Thanks for the visit! Sorry it took me so long to return it - we lost power yesterday and it didn't come back on until the middle of the night!

The picture looks like a lost weed out of the garden. Poor thing.

david mcmahon said...

Must be a floor-leaved clover!!!

Paulie said...

Even a weed can be a thing of beauty when it is somewhere unique!

MyMaracas said...

What a hopeful image, that tough little plant shouldering its way up to the sun. Lovely!

Damama T said...

As always - leave it to you to come up with something nobody else would think of! You rock. Well, I guess in this case you PLANT! LOL! xoxoxo

Rosebud said...

Reminds me of an old Rock-n-Roll song. Only the strong will survive.
