They bloom when their heads are chopped off...



The violets in the mountains have broken the rocks. ~Tennessee Williams

City Version:  The  hyacinth in the parking lot have burst through the blacktop...

This is one of my favorite things about this time of year....that seemingly from "nothing" ... from hard, dead ground and through the cement comes new life! I'm so glad I discovered this quote (and the city version!)

Such a great photo, Amy! Clever re-interpretation of the Tennessee Williams quote too.
I agree Adrienne! Amazing how the empty ground literally springs to life in spring (loving the fact that these particular plants did not even heed the blacktop, but just broke up through it - awesome sauce!)

Thank y'all for the comments and Tabitha - thanks for encouraging the quotes every week!! <3
