Saturday Photo: Reflection of Winter
Some what paradoxically, house plants do very well in the winter here. That's probably because, while the days are short and it's cold outside, usually it's very sunny. My two hibiscus get a growth spurt most years around now, while my lantana that never blooms outside in the summer because there's so much shade, sets out a few blossoms.
A couple of years ago I took this photo of a restaurant window where flowers were bravely blooming even though the snow was piled deep on the street. There's a lesson there, I think We manipulate our living conditions with both good and bad consequences.
