“The flowers of late winter and early spring occupy places in our hearts well out of proportion to their size.”
Gertrude S. Wister
The violet is February’s flower, although there are some that say the primrose holds this place of honor. The richly colored Amethyst is the birthstone for the month of February and the astrological signs for February are: Aquarius, January 20 – February 18 and Pisces, February 19 – March 20
February sees a large rodent providing weather forecasts and hope of an early spring.
Gardeners’ hearts are set aflutter with the arrival of seed catalogues and plans for the summer bounty.
Romantics everywhere have an extra special day to profess their love and affection.
There are special observances in February to honor Presidents, the Chinese New Year and specials days in many countries – as if February now allows us to celebrate.
Somehow in February, here in North America, we feel we have turned the corner on old man winter – there is now more winter behind us than in front of us. And, if we squint we can see spring just around the corner.
February brings hope for things to come.
“February is merely as long as is needed to pass the time until March.”
Dr. J. R. Stockton
