The days are still short, and we’re getting plenty of rain this winter (though, we have had a break for a week, and it’s been AWESOME)… sometimes you have to make do.
P.S. This is the second year I’ve left a little bit of extra light out until Groundhog’ Day, a day I learned is neatly halfway between winter solstice and spring equinox. I decided fun, pretty, and a little whimsical beat out a lot of other adjectives in a little mental tug of war after Paul suggested I unpack some strands moments after putting them away along with the ornaments and mantle/etc decorations. I like.
