The Will to Survive

Posted by Jake on 19 August, 2009


It truly is amazing that plants try to live no matter what happens to them. One day last week I noticed a bloom in the middle of the grass. I couldn’t think what it could possibly other then a weed. As I got up on it I saw it was a Morning Glory; I picked it up and tried to see if it was rooted in the ground. I thought maybe I had dropped seeds or the plant had made it’s own seeds and the plant was able to grow since it had been two weeks since I mowed. Once I picked it up I saw that it was not rooted and in fact was the piece I cut from the vine two dys before. Now, two days fter ebing cut with no water or rain and in full hot sun it was blooming. I left it there and I doubt it survived after that, but I thought it was pretty amazing.
