Cliff top flowers

Walking along a cliff top it is always a pleasure to see the variety of flowers and shrubs bravely facing the elements.  Nobody planted them there, they haven't been carefully pruned and watered by an able gardener, but there they are brightening up the path. The beautifl blooms you can see in gardens have usually had a lot of  loving care showered on them and they respond producing a magnificent display. It makes me think of people. It is easy to grow up well in a loving and happy home, or it should be. The cliff top flowers at first glance aren't as showy as the ones in a garden. They have to thrive and survive on their own. They look perfectly at home. They grow sturdy and strong, standing up to the wind and the rain. They keep you company on your walk.
