Hibiscus Tea

It was not there until my friend Uzma asked me to collect hibiscus flowers for she wanted to prepare some medicines. I am a morning walker person. I take that time asĀ  ‘just me’ time. While I walk, my soul talks to me. It keeps me leisurely busy with the thoughts when I was a child, when I had tough time and when I will be old, sort of relaxing mind and body talks. Meanwhile I walk, I click pictures of sunrise, flowers and birds which appeal me a story. Uzma saw the picture of Hibiscus in my whatsapp status and hence it began. I did the collection of Hibiscus flowers from every corner of the city. ‘A friend calling’
