Sadly, the strange yellow flower (posted in an earlier dated entry of mine titled ‘Perseverance’ from July 16th) which had defied the odds and grew itself through the sidewalk cracks of a frequented community street, as I feared, no longer stands. I do not know if it had been removed and replanted by another who may have been just as fascinated by its growth as I was or, if it had been destroyed by nature, children, or someone who believed it to be nothing more than a weed or nuisance. This photo was taken 1 week after my initial entry and just a few days after, the flower had disappeared.
