The original owners who built our house in the 40’s were connected to the University of Alberta landscaping department. Maybe that’s why I keep finding wonderful plants in-between bushes. These anemones looked tiny and miserable as they grew by a tall fence in the back of the garden. But such plants have immense survival “instinct”. As soon as I gave them better conditions they bloomed profusely. I wonder how true that is for people. Would any of us panhandle without the conditions that help us thrive? Would Lenoose, a homeless photographer I befriended briefly before he passed away have been a renowned artist?
