If you can’t take the heat

9 Hibiscus

The heater in my car is jammed on.  I have had it fixed but it has broken again.  This makes any journey over 5 miles long challenging, especially throughout the summer months. The experience of driving from South Wales to North Devon today was interesting.  It was like being in a Native American sweat lodge without the benefit of a spiritual experience.  All we had were butter mints and a luke warm bottle of water and I’m not sure they count as sacred fare.  Three of my passengers however were quite thrilled at this tropical trip: Mexican firecracker Dahlia “Mystic Spirit”, Asian beauty Hibiscus syriacus and the Mediterranean siren Teucrium fruticans.   At least somebody was happy!
