"Why, what's the matter,
That you have such a February face,
So full of frost, of storm and cloudiness?"
-   William Shakespeare,  Much Ado About Nothing

The fragrant winter bloomers are always such a treasure

"February is merely as long as is needed to pass the time until March."
Dr. J. R. Stockton

Loud are the thunder drums in the tents of the mountains.
Oh, long, long
Have we eaten chia seeds
and dried deer's flesh of the summer killing.
We are tired of our huts
and the smoky smell of our clothing.
We are sick with the desire for the sun
And the grass on the mountain.
Paiute Late Winter Song

"The word February is believed to have derived from the name 'Februa' taken from the Roman
'Festival of Purification'.  The root 'februo' meaning to 'I purify by sacrifice'.  As part of the seasonal calendar February is the time of the 'Ice Moon' according to Pagan beliefs, and the period described as the 'Moon of the Dark Red Calf' by Black Elk.  February has also been known as 'Sprout-kale' by the Anglo-Saxons in relation to the time the kale and cabbage was edible."
