Lonely Cornstalk


Isn't this strange?

From the cement and asphalt wilderness of South Minneapolis (where I work) comes this single stalk of corn, which grows next to a garage door in the alley behind the church where I work.

Even on my crabby days this summer - this made me laugh.

It's like a farm trying to rise from the dead.

Yes-exactly. Except it's rising from just a tiny crack in the cement slab. And the garage owners park in the garage - why wouldn't they pull it out?

Too funny.
