I was thinking about the ability of plants to grow in any place they can get a foothold.
After a rain, in a desert, flowers bloom. It’s like magic. There are also small bushes and trees that grow there.

I found some wonderful pictures and had to share them.

The rest of the pictures are from public domain images. The photographers have taken the most beautiful pictures. Their names aren’t with the pictures on the site, so I can’t tell you who took these pictures.
