Have a Heart, February
"February, month of despair, with a skewered heart in the centre." ~Margaret Atwood
Don't worry, I'm not in despair...but I do think February is that one month of the winter when it seems it'll never end...the holidays are a distant memory, the landscape is bleak, the days are freezing cold, and spring is still far enough away that it seems it'll never get here. I feel a bit sorry for February - I think it's probably the least appreciated month of the year. It doesn't even get the standard 30-day minimum that all the other months are allotted! Poor February doesn't get a lot of love, so it's ironic that the "love holiday" falls in this month.
I stuck a tissue paper heart to my window with a piece of Scotch tape as an iPhone photo op idea - it gave me several nice images. I left the heart up there to make me smile when I see it...it's a cheerful reminder that spring will one day arrive. Be gone, February!
Camera app notes: For the bokeh in the first photo, I used Picfx. For the text, I used Over. For the white border in the second photo, I used PixlrExpress PLUS (Pattern Borders section).
