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!
Have I ever mentioned how much I hate winter? If it wasn't for the environmental and financial cost (and planning) I'd swap hemispheres every equinox and live a life of eternal summer. 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.
