One thing that’s always interested me is flowers that escape from their beds or pots and spring up as volunteers elsewhere. These impatiens showed up on my mother’s brick courtyard, from some pots she’d had on stands nearby. I loved the look of the impatiens against the bricks, with the added bonus of the moss. And the base of the black metal plant stand above it just added to the effect. This picture was taken last September, and the impatiens stayed in bloom until almost Thanksgiving. Life, as they say, finds a way.
