Five easy ways to brighten up February



What is your favourite colour? This month is often associated with red – roses, ribbons, hearts and the other symbols of St Valentine’s Day. Traditionally, though, purple is February’s colour; the flower of the month is the violet and the birthstone the amethyst, said to signify peace and serenity and provide courage when needed. All of which are welcome attributes in 2022! 

It certainly feels like a good month to think about adding some colour and cheer to what can be a rather dull time of year. So, today we have suggestions for five easy ways to brighten up February.
