Wednesday Vignette, the will to live

Plants are amazing. 

There was a photo-shoot in my garden back in July, the container filled with Alstroemeria 'Indian Summer' was having a bad moment, so I pulled it and stuck it in the garage. Then forgot about it. Then Andrew began a painting project (the south side of our house) and a ton of materials for that job were stored in the garage too. I lost track of the alstroemeria, that is until I went in digging for tarps (for the tree removal project) and saw this...

Wow! I know alstroemeria and bomarea are related, here's proof! The poor thing is looking very vine-like as it searches for some light...

  1. The force of nature.
    (Who knew there was a climbing alstroemeria...)

  2. A good life lesson for all of us right now - seek out the light!

  3. I hope it has a better future ahead of it.

  4. Yep...the WILL to live IS strong!


  5. Oh, that poor dear... Glad you found it again!It kind of reminds me of most sun-preferring plants that make it out of my garden alive - LOL! Also, can't believe I forgot to comment on your vignette yesterday. So sorry - what was I thinking??
