My first action when planning the front porch in February was to remove the snowman flag, which cheerfully invited Winter to bring on the snow. By the time January was done freezing us out, I was no longer feeling prepared to welcome the snow. So the flag was folded up for next Winter. That turned out not to matter as we’ve had plenty more snow in February. Most of these pictures were made at the very start of the month, in a lull when most of the snow had melted. It didn't last and most of the month has looked like this.
I have a heart wreath for Valentine’s Day, but opted for a less traditionally colored bow on the wreath.
