February 2016-The Changing Seasons V1

I am posting this photo gallery as a version 1 entry for Cardinal Guzman’s Changing Seasons challenge for February and also for the daily post weekly photo challenge: Seasons

February has been fickle. Last week, snow and ice were treacherous. Right now, it is 55 degrees. I much prefer the weather of today, even though there has been some rain.

Right before the bad weather, a large flock of robins returned to my backyard trees. Icy conditions had been forecast and I decided these birds were serving fair warning to prepare before the storm. In fact, there were many, many fallen branches from the heavy ice. I was lucky and never lost my power although thousands in my town did. The squirrels and sparrows seemed pleased when they could finally warm up in the sun.

This weekend, the squirrels have been dining leisurely and there have been lots of bird songs filling the warmer air. I hope the mockingbird was simply echoing a tune and not mocking my hopes for an early spring!

You can see my single photo version 2 entry for February here. To see my previous changing Seasons posts, you can click on the header at the top of the page. consider joining in so we can see the seasonal changes you experience!

Hearts are one of the first things that come to my mind when thinking of February. The association of February and Valentine’s Day is automatic. Red and pink hearts abound. Candy boxes and cards and lockets in the shape of hearts take center stage.

I like the red stones and curved shape of this heart pendant. I have had it for a long time, and it was not a Valentine’s Day present. Still, when February comes around, that is when I find myself looking for it in my jewelry box. This month seems a perfect time to wear it!
