When you listen carefully, you can hear the song of winter. More muted than other seasons, winter nevertheless is full of sound, except perhaps when a new blanket of snow is falling. Birds sing and ruffle the leaves and needles of evergreens. Squirrels and chipmunks rustle the fallen leaves, and chitter and bark to defend their territory and food caches. Branches creak and thump against each other in the wind.

February can be a letdown after a long season of warmth, color, good food and wonderful celebrations. It is a mixture of days – days of winter, days of hopeful spring sightings. It's also a strange mixture of holidays – the renewal of the Lunar New Year and the heady excitement of Valentine's Day.
I often find it difficult to develop a cohesive look for February decor throughout the house. So I decided this year not to try, but to decorate vignettes in all the facets of February!
