Sequestered - Week 143 (CXLIII)

The proper title for this morning's blog offering should probably be "Invoking Summer". That would be far more apt than just "Sequestered".

On a cold evening in January, an aromatic beaker of hibiscus tea with orange and apple slices (both a little over the hill), cinnamon sticks and anise plus a few other favorites from the spice cupboard like cloves and sweet cardamom.

There is summer in every cup, and it's the perfect potion for recovering  from surgery.  No mulled wine here alas, but it lightens my heart and makes me glad.

Yes, you can certainly invoke summer. Me, I'll just be hopeful for spring. It has become a favorite here in the NC mountains. Hope your recovering goes easy breezy.
