Here we are at the bottom of the year. The pit of darkness, cold and grim. From here we begin the ascent to glorious summer! Sun! Warmth! Leaves! Flowers! Light!

I wish I could skip winter entirely. Or just live somewhere without seasons. Or I could do what these people did and have a house inside a greenhouse. Or just live with it and plant more 'winter colour' plants in the garden and get a SAD lamp.
