I’m getting a bit grumpy about the impending winter. I don’t mind the snow but the dark days really get me down. I’m brainstorming ways to combat my seasonal depression and my first tip is flowers. I ordered Paperwhites and two Amaryllis to get me through till January. Tending to growth in the darker days of the year will give me some perspective.I’m reminded of the red geraniums I spotted in the windows at the Olsen House in Maine a few summers back. I have a shelf in a window in my kitchen that I could fit three plants in terra cotta pots across. Red buds and happy green translucent leaves will surely put a smile on my face as the light trickles in and I drink my morning coffee.
