Many of my friends and family seem to suffer from the ‘February Blues’. The (hopefully) happy times of Christmas and New Year are behind us and the spring, let alone the summer holiday season, is so far in the distance that we  wallow in the gloom of the early months of the year. Nature is full of times that allow us to sit and reflect.

If the year has only happy sunny days then we would cease to rejoice in them. We need gloom and darkness that lets us just ‘be’. Renewing our energy for the days when it is essential to go and walk in the sunshine embracing the bounty that is spring. To all who suffer, take heart, know that you are not alone, Nature needs to be quiet at times too to renew her energy. We will have patience.

Best wishes, Denny Bradbury
