A lesson in tenacity

This little pansy has made a home for itself in the tiny gap between my back door step and the paving stones. There can't be any soil there, and it is right in the path of traffic - and when you think that two members of my household have size 11 feet and the other two have a clumsy gene, it's a wonder it has survived. Yet there it sits, flowering defiantly. I'm not sure where it came from, although we did have some winter pansies 18 months ago, so perhaps it's a self-set seedling from then. Isn't nature amazing?
