Winter Fever!

img_4438.JPG

Here are some things that I am tired of: looking at snow, being cold, slipping on ice, high heating bills, dreary days, looking at snow,  getting the car stuck in snow, not being able to park because of snow & looking at snow! I’m going stir crazy and I am so ready for spring & warm weather and bright sunny days without snow. To keep myself from really going crazy, I am doing things to combat my winter fever until spring comes—buying myself pretty tulips, looking at spring accessories and planning a trip to Longwood Gardens and/or the Philadelphia Flower Show.

What about you? How are combating those winter blues?

    OH I need to go buy some tulips! Those are so lovely. We are drinking lots of coffee and I’ve been crocheting, knitting, and stenciling t-shirts!

    Oh I am with you 100%. A local florist had a post-Valentines day sale on so I loaded up on cut flowers. And I’m planning a trip to Logee’s – http://logees.com/ – it’s like a jungle inside a Victorian era greenhouse – delightful!

    I desperately want to go to Longwood Gardens next time I take a trip to Philly.

    I painted my bedroom yellow. And I do lots of yoga.

    I don’t want to gloat, but we had our first, glorious spring day here today. Though it started out with can’t-see-across-the-street fog. But before today, I have been spending extra time crafting. My biggest accomplishment was making a DIY lightbox

    Oooh I love those tulips . . . their my husbands favorite flower. I’m with you, I’m so fed up of all this snow and am so ready for spring. Today I made it up my very steep and icy road and headed to the mall for the first time in ages. It helped blow off the cabin fever a little. :0)

    The tulips are gorgeous (also happen to be one of my favorite flowers)!!

    I really think your idea of a floral bouquet is something I need to do as well. The bright colors alone lift my spirits.

    Love that bright yellow! I am tired all all things snow, too. I’ve discovered that oranges are a wonderful antidote… so cheerful to look at, smell, and taste. Whoever decided citrus season should be in the winter was brilliant. 😉
