I searched my archives for another summery photo to warm us all up on these cold winter days and came up with this lotus blossom. I made this photograph last year on the island of Kauai'i when we visited the National Tropical Botanical Garden, also known as the McBryde Garden. If you ever get a chance, go there. The plants are amazing. Later, I will post a photo of an allerton fig tree from this garden which was used in the filming of Jurassic Park.
I'm leaving for a week's cruise down the Mexican coast on Sunday and cannot wait to warm up! I emphatize with my friends in the midwest and east. I don't know how you do it. It is cold enough here in northern California with our freezing fog. Stay warm, friends, and think thoughts of spring!
