  1. That was one of the first things I marveled at when I moved out West . . . trees growing seemingly out of bare rock, and some are quite substantial.

    . . . then again, they are well anchored if their roots are going through crevices in solid rock.

    Yes! and a perfect example of the perseverance of natural things. Aren’t the patterns in the rock fascinating, too.

  4. So many plants can get their roots anchored in what seems to be a teaspoon full of soil. It’s amazing!

  10. I see many trees like this in my walks in Switzerland and each time I marvel at how these trees survive and how they establish themselves in these unlikely situations.
