In the depth of winter I finally learned that there was in me an invincible summer.
I don’t always find Camus’ summer within me, but here in Baja California Sur, it’s easy to imagine that mid-February is not the depth of winter.
The following photos (taken in the past few days) are meant to be a bouquet for dear friend Sandy Kay Fox on her birthday. (Big hugs to you, Sandy!!) And I hope they bring joy and hope to the rest of you that spring is not far away.
What reminds you–even in winter–that spring will soon arrive?
Do you agree with Camus that within us there is an invincible summer?
Additional photo for the unknown bloom above. The leaves do look as though it could be in the pea family. Thanks to my friend Betty–see comment below.
The next photo shows the plant as a whole, taken from horseback. You have to look closely to see the blooms on the ends of the dry-looking branches.
