Christmas Mystery

Truly I’m in awe of this hardy little snapdragon.  He is descended from a plant about 15 feet away – – also growing in a rocky crevice.  His parent bloomed all summer, but this fellow popped up in summer & started to bloom by September.  Now, in late December, he’s still holding on!  How he’s surviving is a mystery.   I reckon he’s some kind of natural mutant out to prove survival of the fittest.
