Even to me, the title of the post sounds so deep. Not really.
Here in Maryland it is smack dab in the middle of winter but luckily we have short winters compared to my home state of Illinois and to my previous home of Minnesota.
Enjoy these flowers which I took at the US Botanical Garden in DC while my mom was visiting over Thanksgiving. This oasis is open 365 days of the year-yes, every day! And in the winter it feels just like the Southern Hemisphere.
