It’s almost January and winter is in full swing. If you’re on the East Coast, the days are shorter, the air is colder, and cabin fever may be setting in. You may find yourself dreaming of swimming pools, warm sunshine, and flowers. Although winter is a magical time, it can be difficult to brace the cold for months on end.
To help fight the winter blues, I’ve gathered a few of my favorite flower quotes. Take a moment this afternoon to read, relax, and reflect upon the beauty of nature. I hope these quotes take you to a warmer climate and add a bit of sunshine to the snowy days!
