I know it's going to get warmer here. Soon, though possibly not soon enough. For a chilly and dreary day, here are some reminders that we were once warm and will be warm again.
Here's Calotropis procera
, or roostertree, as I found it when visiting (back in 2005) the island of St. John.

As a member of the milkweed family (Asclepiadaceae), it reminds me of the many Asclepias
species (which are in the same family) one will see along roadsides and in fields across much of North America in the summer time.
|Asclepias syriaca, or common milkweed, with sweet pea.|

|Asclepias tuberosa, with Lysimachia nummularia (moneywort) 'Aurea' running around underneath.|
Let's keep warm thoughts!
