Escape from Winter's Gloom

This winter we have had more snow and cold here in Boise than ever before in recorded history.  February has been ROUGH.   Everyone I know has been getting antsy with cabin fever.   We found a pretty good way to dispel the gloom of being cooped in.   We took a day to walk through the rows of flowers at Edward's Green House.   Being around living plants and color gave my spirit a much needed lift!

Best of all, my sweet son bought me a bowl of tulip bulbs that were well up and full of promise.  It wasn't long before I had gorgeous blooms on my window sill.   It was just the boost I needed to kick my winter blues to the curb and begin looking forward to spring.
