Pansies this week in an alley in Saratoga Springs, NY.   There are so many of them growing in such a narrow crack between the wall and pavement that I'm assuming they are self-seeded, possibly from the window box above.

    Great photo! I have some clumps of purple sweet alyssum (growing deeper in color as the days grow colder) that have popped up in some random spots, reseeding where they will.

    I love finding sweet little surprises like that when venturing through the garden. This year my big surprise was finding the sweet basil, I thought had been killed by heat, had reseeded and is growing all over my garden. I have also found a gardenia that I was sure had died, coming back to life and thriving. My garden surprises me all the time!

    Step on a crack. Break your mother’s back. The pavers look like crap. The pansies probably have slug slime on them.

    I find myself fondly cherishing whatever pathetic bedraggled flower manages to make its presence known at this time of year. This fall has been great for that.

    Don’t you just love these serendipitous little botanical happenings? The contrast of harsh environment with the delicate blooms amplifies the delight.

    I just came in from viewing the morning frost in my gardens and found great joy in the scattering of Johnny-Jump-Ups that I found peeking out from small micro-pockets of protection.

    Life is good.
