I decided to celebrate earth day, which is on Monday by taking notice on the nature’s “survivors”. Like the plants that grow on places that aren’t really conventional for a growth of a plant. So I took my camera and went on a walk around the neighborhood. Here are some pictures that I took.
This one has some unusually grown branches. It doesn’t look like all the other trees but these imperfections are what make it beautiful.
These two are from the same tree. You can see from the first one that it has been probably struck by a lightning because it has been cut from the top and still it’s growing. That if something is survival 🙂
Here’s some moss, growing on the foundation of a bridge. Not the most perfect place to grow.
This one is growing from between two large rocks, it can’t be a good place to be growing and still it’s quite healthy.
This one is growing right next to a big road. It must get all kinds of toxic gases and stuff while growing in a place like this but it’s still growing well 🙂
This little one is growing in the middle of a street covered in asphalt. There’s not that much space for it to grow, but it’s still trying. That’s determination if anything 🙂 The sad part is that it’ll probably be cut down before it can grow big or it’ll die on it’s own accord. It’s a shame such a determination will go to waste 😦
We should learn from these trees. They don’t just give up and die when they confront problems, they push through their trouble. Mother nature gives them the tools and means to survive even in the middle of the city. No matter how much we people directly or indirectly affect their quality of life, they still do their best to survive. We should honor the creations of mother nature and not take them for granted 🙂
