  1. The ruby is resplendent on this bloomer. Sitting on a dry desert floor, it grows amazingly. That is thrives after the desert and frost, is great. Defying all odds, it grows an continues to look beautiful…

  2. These are so lovely!

  3. Hi Mary. Love the picture and the hope and triumph it displays. Life will out.

  4. A flower to some……. to others, just tossed.
