How Flowers Can Brighten Your Home During Winter

Posted by scentandviolet on January 15, 2016

Christmastime is the season of cheer, but for many, the winter blues still persist. Although it may seem a little crazy, science has shown that the decrease in sunlight beginning in the late fall and lasting through the winter can have a drastic effect on your mood.
