February 2021

It’s that time of month again when I look at the same month last year and choose 20 photos for my Calendar. Meet February, the month when spring comes to town.

The only time I ventured out of my municipality, the air by the Orbetello lagoon was full of smoke. Italians like to burn stuff so much. Still, there was one particularly nice flyer just where I left him the last time. More than one could also be observed from our garden.

If you ask last year, spring will be unlocked in exactly two weeks. The three fruit trees, which are always the first, came abloom around February 20th. I don’t count mimosa (as Leya taught me, it is actually acacia), since its yellow blossoms can often be seen as early as in January.

There was some water, some confetti, a cake base, a snail and bestia, and that was about it. Luckily February is short because we are ready for the things to come.

In current news, another gold medal for Slovenia in mixed team ski jumping with lots of disqualified jumpers in other teams: Norway, Japan, Germany, Austria… Most likely Slovenia would have won in any case because they slay but it was a pain to watch what some others were willing to do to gain some ground.

Plus, Luka and Mavs won beautifully again against Atlanta Hawks even though the referees did all they could to help them lose. Ah well. Sometimes honour and skills do win out.

A Slovenian in Italy for love. Blogger, photographer, translator and would-be writer who would be a writer if she wrote. Plus reluctant but emerging poet. Beware.

  1. You spotted some kind of Hawk or bird of prey. Spring looks pretty there in February. The ground squirrels here have woke up and are coming out of hibernation so Spring must be just around the corner although Punxsutawney Phil (a groundhog) says there’s still 6 weeks of winter left. 😀

    Is that Bestia’s lead? It looks like a garden hose which he’s trying to get to his mouth for a drink. 😂
