On one of our of our wonderful drives
my husband spotted some some beautiful wildflowers.
They grew on a steep hill
where a landslide had once been
He climbed the mountain and picked them
roots carefully intact,
They stayed in pristine condition
they were confined to a pot
and placed in perfectly balanced potting soil.
They are starting to come back
but will most likely remain small and be used as garden filler.
Had we left them alone they would have flourished
taken over the hillside
and shared their beauty with the world.
