Please indulge me while I personify this plant I came across on my walk home from the coffeehouse with my family last weekend. To me, it looks like she was being chased, and is hiding around a corner, hoping she’s shaken the villain who’s chasing her. (1st & 2nd photos)
Or perhaps she’s just robbed the bank and is fleeing the police (this is, after all, the exterior wall of my bank). Then she peeks around the corner to see if the coast is clear. (3rd photo)
OK, perhaps a bit too much caffeine… But check out where this plant is growing from! (4th photo) Talk about beauty from an unlikely source!
