The beginning of February marks Imbolc, one of the cross-quarter days between the solstice and the equinox. That means we’re halfway through the winter and if you, like me, have been having a low-key tantrum about the cold and dark lately, there’s hope. We’ve also made it through the “Persephone days” and have more than 10 hours of daylight now.

We went to Red Butte Garden yesterday and sure enough, bulbs were starting to come up in the most sheltered areas. It’s almost over. We can do this.
