You can either give in or give up on the notion that we still have a few more weeks of winter. In fact, Mr. Groundhog hasn’t even been asked to come out of his burrow, until February 2nd, to predict how much longer it will be before spring!
I must admit, I’m a sunshine kind of gal but I still prefer to embrace the season by honoring it realistically. No trying to put around fake flowers to pretend it doesn’t exist. I’ll gather up the textures of the season and pay homage to it in several bowls or containers. In this case, I’ve used one of my ironstone pieces and sprinkled on some essential oils to welcome me into the room.
But just in case you need a little pick-me-up of the flowering kind, here is a late-blooming amaryllis. I thought it was being stubborn but I think it sensed when to make its grand entry!
As the old saying goes, better late than never!
Happy Wintering! ~ Wanda
