While I don’t always get tired of winter, we have had so much snow this February that I am longing for spring, or even better, summer. Here are some photos to give you and idea of what it’s like right now, and of summer flowers to remind us all of what’s to come.

All the following photos were taken in Colorado last September. One of the benefits of living here is that plants can bloom well into the fall.

Do you get tired of winter? How do you cheer yourself up when the weather gets you down?

  1. In Virginia my winters are not as intense as yours in Colorado, but I still get tired of the dark…I have a light therapy box in the kitchen which I sit in front of in the morning. I plan my garden. I plan a trip. Sometimes I force bulbs so I have something blooming. I watch the birds on the feeder. The birds are the best!

    1. Colorado winters have lots of sunlight, but more cold than I got in upstate New York. Still, I also use a therapy lamp in the mornings (mostly to help me sleep and wake up). I get outside despite the cold whenever I can, and I am counting every singing bird I hear right now. They are all telling me spring is on the way. Mostly, I’m frustrated because I want to get outside and write in my nature journal, and most of the time, it’s too cold to be sitting still. Looking forward to warmer days…
