10 Beautiful Flowers to Brighten the Winter in Montana

In case you missed it last week, meteorological winter came in mostly like a lamb on December 1st.  Coming next week will be the astrological start of winter on December 21st.  As the realization of winter finally being here hits, it brings with it the sadness of not seeing color in our yards or homes in the form of flowers or plants.

It doesn't have to be that way though.  You can help get rid of some of those winter doldrums with flowers that will brighten any room as they bloom through the holidays and towards springtime in Montana.
