“Patience and fortitude conquer all things”
~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
Wild Garden Cress is a very hardy plant…or as some would say…a weed. This beautiful specimen, regardless of the frigid temperatures, is growing between the rocks bordering my front gardens. Garden Cress is a plant with fortitude. No matter what the conditions I can usually find sprigs of it in my yard.
Wild Garden Cress is an edible weed. A terrific article with good information can be found at The Potager Page.
A synonym of fortitude is courage. I think this amazing little plant has plenty of courage.
