The heart of winter,
A month of cold, snappy coldness,
When snow squeaks under your boots
And your nostrils feel like they are sticking together.
A white month, many shades of white,
When fields are expansive in cleanness.
February is an invitation to dress warmly and be challenged by the outdoors.
It is a month of wool socks and snuggling under knitted afghans.
A time to watch bird feeders and fill them generously,
In February, hot chocolate tastes delicious,
Oven and slow cooker meals are celebrated and warm.
February is persistent
And picture perfect.
February is …. here!
