An invincible summer

It’s been a long snowy winter in the northeast. Even today, March 30th, I awoke to a forecast of “currently snowing”, so I thought this quote from Albert Camus apt:

“In the midst of winter, I finally learned that there was in me an invincible summer.”

And here it is, despite the continued wintery precipitation, unstoppable transformation:

Indoors, getting ready to go out are all manner of sprouts and seedlings – tomatoes, Thai and Genovese basil, Thai eggplant, kale, broccoli, cauliflower, hollyhocks, amaryllis, tulsi, passionflowers, etc. – but I’ve posted only bell peppers & oregano below:

Invincible, indeed, is life.
