Hibiscus

 “Winter is nature’s way of saying, “Up yours.”
― Robert Byrne

“Blow, blow, thou winter wind, thou art not so unkind as man’s ingratitude.” ~William Shakespeare

Now that Fall is dwindling away and winter is rapidly approaching, I thought I would post a photo that will hopefully elicit thoughts of spring and warmth and sun.  A little reminder for those of us who live in areas with cold climates and loath the coming bitterness of winter and all its trappings.  Who know just how dreary and lethargic the long cold winter can be. 

Although, when I asked my daughter to give me an adjective to describe winter, she said with a smile on her face, “cheerful.”  

~Perhaps I need it more than anyone.

“What good is the warmth of summer, without the cold of winter to give it sweetness.” ― John Steinbeck, Travels with Charley: In Search of America

 

You may not of known: Dried hibiscus is edible, and is often a delicacy in Mexico.
