Still Winter

February 13th, 2019

In early February, it starts to feel like there is hope for spring to come once again. The sun rises higher in the sky and the days start to get noticeably longer. There are warmer days, the snow melts from the roof and drip, drip, drips on the ice/snow below. February is still very much a winter month though, it’s probably our snowiest month. Last night a winter storm rolled through leaving us in a blanket of white. As sit here at my computer working, I’m seeing the snow sticking to the window behind my cup of pens & turkey feathers.

I used to be pining for planting and spring by this time, as I get older (and busier), I’m learning to love the stillness of this season (not that it’s still by any means). I start seeds later and later each year, trying to savor as much rest as possible and get in lots of reading during the winter. So this morning I’m enjoying the snow blowing outside my window.

Do you live in a place with distinct seasons? Have you learned to appreciate each one for what it offers?
