|What can I say? The last full week of February opens cold. |
|Remember this? It's Pakim Pond in Brendan T. Byrne State Forest in south Jersey last autumn. Click to enlarge. |
|It looks like this now. I am looking forward to adding a spring shot of the location to the series. Meanwhile, here is the February stanza from A Year's Windfalls, a poem by Christina Georgina Rossetti.|
"On the wind in February
Snowflakes float still,
Half inclined to turn to rain,
Nipping, dripping, chill.
Then the thaws swell the streams,
And swollen rivers swell the sea. --
If the winter ever ends
How pleasant it will be."
