That's wonderful. That image is a tale of endurance, and reminds me of the cover of the book "Stories of Strength" (in which Frank has a couple of stories).

Brave little flower. Did you know that alfalfa roots can go through concrete?

What do you think Martin should do about his worms?

I hope that it will last long on that location but I don't think it will.

I love photos like that. Lovely colours.

Callum is adorable. How quickly he has grown. I love the quilt too I really want to learn how to make quilts or do patchwork I just love them. I started to do some small project cross stitch. I am enjoying it.
