Honey-sweet May, when the birds come back, and the flowers come out, and the air is full of the sunrise scents and songs of the dawning year.

And so by degrees the winter wore away… and the chill, bitter, windy, early spring came round.

Late February days; and now, at last, might you have thought that winter’s woe was past; so fair the sky was and so soft the air.

Some say they hate February because it’s so… grey. I, for one, love grey! It’s subtle, neutral and soothing. Like these images:

Winter is the time for comfort, good food, for warmth, for the touch of a friendly hand and a talk beside the fire: it is a time for home.

Time to put the bird feeders out (robin in snow, photo by Ross Hoddinott):
And November goes,
With the last red berries
And the first white snows.
With night coming early,
And dawn coming late,
And ice in the bucket
And frost by the gate.
The fires burn
And the kettles sing,
And earth sinks to rest
Until next spring.
