Sorrel Picking...


After watching for a time...
all the lovely sorrel, aka roselle hibiscus, aka Florida cranberry, flowers...


bloom their way into sunshine...


they then developed...


into beautiful, waxy-looking calyxes...


ready for the picking


with the sorrel plants still blooming and giving us fruit into the next season...


I will be drying some for tea throughout the next months...


and making some homemade jam this week with fresh picked sorrel


sunshine, warm weather and cranberry-colored sorrel


are some of those outdoor blessings from the Lord


May your day or night find warmth and sunshine in God's grace.

  1. That's quite a large barrel full. But they're light and mostly hollow, right? I doubt you'll get much jam after the tea!
