Time for some reminders of heat

It has been snowing here for the past few days with no sign of sun. Yesterday I drove through "flurries" - as the weather people call them - that on the way back from the city (three hours away) seemed like freezing rain as it stuck to my windshield in the dark. Did not make me happy.

Even though it looks like the sun is trying to come out this morning, there are still flakes of snow drifting down, so I decided it was time for some colour, some reminders that Canada has more than one season and that spring is not too far away.

This beautiful red hibiscus is one of two huge old plants in the same pot. Given to me by my father nearly 30 years ago, these two plants just keep on going. They are so cheerful - and the red? Today it's the perfect antidote to the winter gray.

Hope you have a "hot" day or maybe a "hot date" this evening.

  1. Absolutely beautiful. I know you are searching for some sun in your area my friend and I hope this brought a little to your day. And it is amazing that you have had these plants for so long, I bet you can't wait for them to bloom :)
