The Reds of Winter

A few images from the botanical gardens at the Riverbanks Zoo….

“Better than any argument is to rise at dawn and pick dew-wet red berries in a cup.” – Wendell Berry

“No winter lasts forever; no spring skips its turn.” –  Hal Borland

The flowers of late winter and early spring occupy places in our hearts well out of proportion to their size. –  Gertrude S. Wister
