Winter Blahs

I get a news letter everyday from GrannyMoon
Today I wanted to share this

Daylight Ritual

Incense of the day: Peony

By this time of the winter you may be experiencing “winter blues” from
dreary days, too much snow, or being cooped up in your house too long. Chase
the blues away by making the house springlike. Get “daylight” bulbs and
replace your standard bulbs. Fresh flowers or even artificial ones can add a
springlike feeling. Floral scents such as lavender or lilac will make the
house smell like spring. Wash curtains, bed linens, and towels with a fabric
softener that has that “spring fresh” scent. Add a new picture that brings
spring to mind, or paint one. Maybe add some new, brighter colors around the
house to help lift the winter doldrums. Change your surroundings: add color
and brightness and scent to bring those “winter blues” under control.

You and GrannyMoon have read my mind!
As beautiful as our snow is, I am in need of a pick-me-up!
Thank you :)

I notice today that more items are pecking though my hodge podge flower bed, below the front window.

But it looks like anther round of snow may be coming though.
I'm ready to have a change in this weather.

I tried to do a little spring cleaning I kept getting interrupted.
