Monthly Dogwood: February 1

This morning, the first day of February, brought a faded sunlight and the warmest day in the last few weeks.  Despite the cold, there has been sun all week.  The last snowfall has melted in the sun, though some remains.
The thin branches of the dogwood catch snow as it falls, though the sunlight quickly melts that snow.  This morning, the branches were lovely in their starkness.
Up close they are Winter itself.
It’s February and that’s a fitting circumstance.  There will likely be more snow and cold before the month ends.  Winter will have its due and the dogwood will watch over it all.
