Rue and Oregon Grape 2/1/15

2:1:15 r top sigWith the lengthening days which distinguish the third month of winter from its predecessor, come ardent desires for spring, and longings for the time of birds and flowers. An adventurous swallow too early flying from the south, a vision of snowdrops in the snow, a day of April warmth lit by a slant February sun, are all hailed with pleasure as harbingers of a more gracious season on its northland way.

Flashback – Wednesday, February 1, 2012 – This is my Maine Coon cat, Phoebe. She loves to sleep and hangout in this carpeted small cat tower.  (Update: Phoebe got cancer and crossed the rainbow bridge in spring 2013.  She is greatly missed.  RIP, Dear One!)
