Our consciousness rarely registers the beginning of a growth within us any more than without us; there have been many circulations of the sap before we detect the smallest sign of the bud.
~ George Eliot

This is an area where we've been tossing birdseed every day or so for years. Mixed blends from those big 30 lb. bags. There's water and food for the songbirds in this small shady area, and many seeds sprout-- we always notice some type of annoying grassy weed that we have to uproot. Now this flower sprouted in the spot. A random seed, unknown. I don't know what kind of flower this is, but it seemed to just suddenly appear while I wasn't paying attention.

Green Flowers

The green flowers that blossom every year on common trees like oaks, maples, and the poplar, (shown here) are among my favorite blossoms.

Nature does nothing uselessly.
