Winter blooms

On these gloomy, gray days it’s nice to have flowers blooming in my kitchen.  I don’t remember the African violet plant and the Christmas cactus ever blooming at the same time before.   “In the depths of winter I finally learned that within me there lay an invincible summer.” –  Albert Camus

Every Leaf Is a Flower

It’s a strange, rainy, late autumn this year.  Although most of the trees have lost their leaves, some leaves are still hanging on and others are just beginning to change colors. Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower.   Albert Camus
