Plants were here before us and they’ll likely be here when we’re gone as well. When the only job you have is to survive (much like a plant), you’d better be pretty darn good at it. Over thousands of years, modern plants have evolved to be stronger and better at surviving than you realize. You’ll never believe what kind of surroundings they’re able to thrive in.
Seeing them grow in places where that would seem impossible is actually kind of inspiring. Take a look and you’ll see why!
Over time, even the pavement couldn’t stop this little sprout.

Whatever you do, do not turn on the garbage disposal.
Who knows how this tree grew here, but now it has the best view around.
Even trees can appreciate good art.
Those roots make those men look young.
Now THAT’S determination.
It’s like a perfect little street bouquet.
Now that’s some design.
Who knows where this little guy came from…
Talk about raising the roof!
Even though plant life is delicate and beautiful, it is amazingly powerful over time. If you pass trees in your daily commute, stop and think about everything they have seen and overcome. It can stop you in your tracks. Click below to share these amazing photos with others.
