Sidewalk Blooms





Walking along, I noticed these blooms tenaciously growing right up out of cracks in the cement.



So I went in for a closer look and saw the delicate purple blossoms softly dancing in the city wind.



So amazing how such pretty little things can not only sprout right out of the sidewalks, but thrive and bloom.

These next ones were a totally different street and a different day. Still coming up out of city concrete...and just as pretty.

I do so enjoy coming up on sweet little surprises like this, don't you?

Statues

"Hundreds of statues stand in eerie silence. Sunlight, shafting through the branches of ancient trees, glints on bronze and marble, while other statues are shaded, set in niches along ivy-covered brick walls." ....Nancy Rhyne






















“As a sculptor sculpts a statue, an educator educates our future generation. Beauty depends on the creator.” 
― Debasish Mridha















“True leaders are like statues, whether it rains or it shines, they never bend their necks to look backwards! They never run away from challenges!” 
― Israelmore AyivorThe Great Hand Book of Quotes









“Your life is a sculpture, every day chip away.” 
― J.R. Rim






I like Michelangelo's vision, 'I saw the angel in the marble and carved until I set him free.” 
― Criss JamiSalomé: In Every Inch In Every Mile











Do you have a favorite statue and if so--where is it?
