Weekly Photo Challenge: Resilient

 field of dandelions

Richmond Hill. May 2014

For this photo challenge, I originally wanted to find a photo that showed a weed growing out of the sidewalks or roads.  We’ve all seen that little sprig of greenery pop out of nowhere on the concrete roads knowing that there was probably insufficient soil or nutrients for it to grow properly but yet there you see it popping out and thriving too.  It’s truly an act of mother nature doing its thing and allowing all living things to thrive no matter how impossible the circumstances are and allowing the organism to grow and continue on to future generations.  Unfortunately, it’s not so easy to find a singular and specific photo like that in my collection of photos so instead, this photo will do.  This photo also shows a plant that is quite resilient and those who have seen this in Canada will know what I’m talking about.  These dandelions are incredibly resilient that after stepping foot on to our Canadian grounds many, many decades ago as a foreign plant from overseas (from the underneath of people’s shoes), it now dominates our grassy fields every spring and summer.  It’s inescapable and you will always find these yellow buggers popping their heads out all the time.  For gardeners, no matter how hard you try to pry these buggers from the soil and weed them out, you will see them return time after time again.

  2. I know exactly what you are saying, because it happens the same to us. The weed is a big tough one. I posted something different:

    They are indeed everywhere but their popping yellow color enhances all of areas where they grow IMHO! Happy New YEar to you.
