Feeling S.A.D

Post: # 254066Post bonniethomas06 »

Oh dear, it has caught up with me again...tired all the time, drained, lank face and hair, just a bit...meh :(

I seem to remember last year we had a thread where we all posted sunny pictures of gardens and things to keep us going. MMM I loved the summery pics on your blog, they really cheered me up.

So here's my offering...the sun will come back one day...won't it?

Oh yes, let's have lots of nice sunny pictures! Here are some spring flowers from last year:

and here's a link to a blog entry with pretty pictures from late February last year (pics were too big to post here) - spring can't be far off now!

ha ha I don't close them - well only in summer in our bedroom to keep the heat out!

Actually it's starting to get light around 8am now - it's amazing how quickly it seems to happen in February compared to January. :sunny:

In Erquy, I LOVE hearing all the shutters opening up in the mornings there~~
Yeah, personally, I love seeing out the windows.... :iconbiggrin: I AM impressed that in summer it's still a bit light at nearly 11 pm there!
Oh, and you're right about the noticable change, just in Feb! My husband was just pointing that out yesterday~~
