Grow in a crack

The street beneath our feet is riddled with cracks and crevices.  These sidewalk shelters can provide a safe haven for wayward seeds.

By a fence 

The steps are color coordinated with the plant leaves.

Drain with plant

Previous visits to this drain can be seen here, and there is more from there.

Same as it never was
