remnants of summer linger
above the February snow
rabbit tracks below
You caught me. I did not get all of the summer's bounty harvested. I left a generous quantity of Brussels sprouts lingering in the garden. A few times this winter, I have trudged out in the snow to gather a few for roasting. They are beautifully preserved, having been frozen much of this time. However, the wild rabbits that haunt the garden have been busy of late. Well, they need to eat too!
How is your February going so far? We have decided in our home to watch a bunch of comedies this month. Intellectual sunshine, perhaps? We could go for motivational talks, such as Ted Talks (which I truly appreciate) or something of that fine caliber, but a good belly laugh in the midst of a gloomy winter does a great deal of good, I believe. Tonight, we will honor the day by watching Bill Murray's Groundhog Day.
Where ever you are, whatever the weather, I wish you good cheer.
