A flower blooms in Lafayette

If you have read “A Tree Grows in Brooklyn” this photo may resonate for you. Francie Nolan manages to bloom in an impoverished family with an alcoholic father. The tree in the title refers to a tree of heaven that is growing improbably out of a crack in the sidewalk. When I saw this determined marigold (growing by a drain next to my house), I thought of Francie.
