I took this picture at the Woodland Park Rose Garden in June, when jackets were option and sunscreen wasn’t and Seattle was filled with flowers.
January can be tough for those of us living in the Pacific Northwest (and in the Nordic countries – hello, Icelanders!). The holidays are over and there’s not much to look forward to until spring. Kids go to school in the dark and grownups go to work in the dark and by the time they go home, it’s dark again. Days can go by without seeing the sun.
Me, I kinda like the dark. Most of the time. But I’m glad there’s a summer to look back on and look forward to.
