Germinating seeds and growing plants exert tremendous forces on inanimate objects around them that confine them. Plants can break concrete, crush stone and split hardwood. More can be read about this process and its mechanism here.

This post is part of the Mosaic Monday meme,
and also part of the Blue Monday meme,
and also part of the Seasons meme.


  1. Rising from the ashes....Thanks for joining in #Allseasons

  2. Love the center photo of the collage. We have very rocky soil here, and I am endlessly impressed with the ability of the plants to go up and down through it! Thanks for linking to Mosaic Monday!
