I bought roses yesterday. February 1st marks a turning in the year, where we’re nearly halfway between the winter solstice and the spring equinox. It is the hump day of winter.
I bought roses because I wanted fresh flowers. I am not desperate for winter to end like I’ve been in the past. Instead, I’m enjoying the cold and the down time while I think how delicious the first warm day will be, and how beautiful the blossoms when they begin.
Until then, to savor both the winter and the coming spring, I might just keep buying flowers.
One thought on “And so we turn towards spring”
Love the expression “hump day of winter.” Best excuse ever for treating yourself to such lovely flowers.
