19th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
An example of love of life

And I received another greeting from nature not far from my house. This plant, popularly called "kora tikan " or "black thorn", anchored with its seed in the crack inside the layer of cement plaster of the wall, took root and began to grow. An example of incredible love of life and adaptation to external unfavorable circumstances. Of course, this plant has a short life. But even in a short time, it will have time to grow roots and give seeds. They will scatter around the neighborhood and give life to new plants. However, the plant is not limited to this. It took root, which passed over the layer of plaster and came out to the surface as a new plant
