Flower in the crannied wall

Well not quite a flower but a pretty plant.

Anytime I come across a wall like this I am reminded of a poem.

‘Flower in the crannied wall’

By Alfred, Lord Tennyson (1809–1892)

FLOWER in the crannied wall,

I pluck you out of the crannies;—

Hold you here, root and all, in my hand,

Little flower—but if I could understand

What you are, root and all, and all in all,

I should know what God and man is.
