Outdoors -- February

What would February be without snow?
But it's not all bad.
Yesterday temps were above freezing and the way things have been, that was a heat wave.
The sun shone all day, and in February it's already quite strong and warm.
My backyard planter was completely in the sun at noon.
The sky is light until almost 6 and actual sunset is after 5:30.
My cardinal and the black-crested titmice are calling regularly to establish their turf.
Your trees should be budding and your shrubs will do so soon -- my privet is flushed yellow which shows the sap is rising.
Hang on, spring is coming!
