Discovered in the Rock Today

By Franklin County Master Gardener Carol Kagan
Oh, how gently summer is sliding into autumn. I took a stroll around the yard in the cool of the morning, carrying my hot tea (known as checking the back 40 at our house).

Weeds are persistent little devils – they pop up in sidewalk cracks,in splits in the road tar,
in a miniscule spot between towering skyscrapers –
even without our help.
I discovered, behind the tall and wide ornamental grass, that my sedum has managed to find several small niches in the rock and has flourished there.

It’s good to know, at the end of the day, that even the good stuff is persistent.
