February

February, a form
Pale-vestured, wildly fair,—
One of the North Wind's daughters,
With icicles in her hair.
~Edgar Fawcett, "The Masque of Months,"
 c.1878

Violets tie for my favorite flowers--but then day lilies might be second!
This is just so very pretty.

Nice quote. You never know if you'll find "icicles" at this time of the year. Your embroidery is always lovely.

How pretty. Most people don't have beautiful linens like this any more. I treasure them! Hugs, Diane
