On the wind in February
Snowflakes float still,
Half inclined to turn to rain,
Nipping, dripping, chill.
~Christina Georgina Rossetti, "A Year's Windfalls," 1866
Hello everyone.......how are your February days treating you? Are you covered in ice and snow?
Are you enjoying the warmth of a sunny day? Whichever you have, I hope it is
pleasant for you.
We have some days of ice, some days of rain, and many days
The colors of February here are gray, and all hues of brown.
The vibrant yellow color of the Italian Jasmine blooming
catches the eye during this bland time of year.
The fragrant blue blossoms of the hyacinth ......that
jumped into my shopping cart at the store,
brings some happy color to the back porch.
Although the landscape may still be in it's winter slumber
the sky does not withhold it's beauty.........in the morning
it is absolutely breathtaking.
although we are still in the middle of freezing temps...........
seeds and seed catalogs are getting me anxious to plant.
Until that time actually comes,........
I can spend my time embroidering the flowers
I want to grow!
Have you started planning a garden for flowers or vegetables?
How are you spending the cold wet days when inside?
I would love to hear!
Here's wishing you pleasant February days!
