"What you See is What you Get".
Looking around we are pleased to see there is still flower power and nature here with us, but not just 'everyday' flowers.
Let's "hit the bricks' and check out this cool little accidental display of real flower-power.
We did not plant it. It was found in the long, untrimmed grass.
The old, broken brick WAS a piece of forgotten building rubble, probably from 1991 when we learned a new DIY
The old clay brick found was laying in the long grass and apparently filled itself up with dirt -and was invaded by happy
plants, natural grasses and some short beautiful blue flowers.
How cool is this? These blue flowers are normally about 36" tall!

What do you make of that?
The concept of miniaturization of Bonsai comes to mind; the tiny amount of soil in the holes in the brick clearly limited the growth potential of the plants. See the tiny *ferns too?
Does this give you any ideas? It sure gave me a few! An invasion of mini-plants!
* The huge, 4 -foot tall ferns on my quad trails in the natural forest at times seed themselves, or find their way into the moss surfaced pots of the bonsai collection.
They miniaturize themselves, adapting to different soil limitations and conditions.
In bonsai pots, the same ferns are miniaturized to a size that is absolutely jewel-sized tiny! This photo includes relatively BIG bonsai wild fern specimens at less than 4" tall !

See? These specimens of the same ferns are over 4 feet tall! Isn't that amazing?
Even E.T.S. knows that " What you see is what you get!"
Is that Incoming I hear?
