February in Blackwater (Mansfield Farms)

My, oh my.
 February may be dreary in Tidewater,
 but it is the ecstatic breaks to warmness that keep me alive.
Between the snow "storms", during the balmy days,
the early ornamental cherries burst into bloom
at th entrance to Mansfield Farms development - -
an optimistic harbinger of spring to come.
How I hated the long, long sepia toned
winters on the Great Lakes.
No color for months on end.
Just a couple of warm days to breathe,
that's all I ever need in winter.
Just looking at those precocious cherry blossoms makes me smile!
