Starting February 5, 2020

"February is the border between winter and spring." - Terri Guillemets, U. S. Quotation Anthologist

The marmot meteorologist predicted an early spring, and we'll believe it when we see it. But this pair of northern flickers photographed by Annie Graybill, Peaceful Pandemonium Photography, seem to be looking forward to the next season, or at least Valentine's Day. That holiday for lovers is just around the corner, and the fun starts this weekend at the wineries with their wine and chocolate pairings. Be sure to check out the Plan Ahead section in this week's Wanderings and make those reservations for you and your special someone. Happy Wanderings!
