I realize that many folks in the South devote much time and energy into beating back life. I do also – a managed and thus “controlled” yard or garden seems to provide more delight than wilderness. But it requires vigilance. Life in these parts doesn’t take “no” for an answer. Heck, even “slow down” is ignored. That’s good.
Tenacious. Life is going to do its thing regardless. When the fundamental conditions merge then Life does its thing – which is to grow, increase, and grow some more. It’s a fascinating process.
Just for funsies, I took some photos of Life the other day. I like the “parking lot bush” that successfully defied traffic and weed eaters. The mossy brick is pretty cool also.
