Indeed it is January!I have the grand freedom of greeting this first day of the first work week of 2016 with delight and some corrections.
Old Man Winter has dropped in for a visit. Brilliant blue skies, whiter than white snow (a covering of just 7cm accumulated over the past week) and -17°C energized my spirits this morning.
All that sparkle and fresh air is the best tonic ever.
To be honest though, the uplift began yesterday with a not-so-wintry stroll through the Allan Gardens Conservatory. Warm, earthy fragrance and bright blooms along paths adorned with greens and poinsettia of every character...
A garden does so much for the soul. As does sunshine.
Wishing you sunshine and renewed energy this week as we all return to regularly scheduled programming.
