A lantana camara and a dewberry vine! Lantanas are pretty hardy...

I have a lantana in the backyard and there was one in the front bed but it was taken out due to foundation repair. I find seedlings on the ground but haven't seen this before Hilarious!

Amazing to see nature's resilience. On the other hand, maybe those gutters haven't been cleaned in awhile and there is some nicely composted leaves. Great picture!

Well shoot, we want you to come read this forum!

Looks like the birds may have been dropping a few seeds on the roof. I think it's fantastic!

edited to add: I spent every summer in Roswell, NM from age 8 to 13. I loved it. Went back the summer of my senior year and worked at R.O. Anderson's oil/cattle company before going off to college. Went to NMSU one semester my senior year. Husband rescued me.....

A Pokeweed plant grew in my gutter this year. Bird-planted, I think...but the seeds came from my plants, I'm sure! Rolling on the floor laughing Rolling on the floor laughing
