This pothole developed in the middle of Sunset Boulevard in Los Angeles. Every day, thousands of cars and buses and trucks pass right over it. Yet down in the hole itself, in that tiny protected space, grass is growing!

I was reminded of Pete Seeger once again. Nature is truly spectacular, and in its hardiest forms, triumphant.


  1. I always think about Jeff Goldblum's line in the film of Jurassic Park - that "life will find a way."

    Oh yeah.

  2. Here's to the grass and here's to Pete Seeger. Have a great weekend, Steve.

  3. There are some determined seeds out there. That's all I can say. At least the pothole serves to catch water. But then I doubt it rains much in LA.
