I'm a Survivor

 Tough little flower 

Sometimes even I have to take a step back and appreciate the little things.  Here I was busting my butt trying to clean out the weeds that were cropping up in places they were not supposed to be, when I realized a single petunia seed must have managed to find its way through the rocks, the gardeners cloth, and take root.

Out of respect for the sheer unlikiness of this single flower working so hard to grow, I couldn't bear to pull it out. It bloomed recently and it turns out its a white petunia.  Which means that this little guy seeded out when I was actually potting its counterparts.

Every time it water my flowers or walk by and see this little guy growing strong, I can't help but smile.  Sometimes it really is the little things.
