Happy February!

Happy February to all my friends and readers

New Calendar picture with this
beautiful watercolour painting by Hanka Koebsch


"... und dann wurde es warm "
"... and then it got warm"



The word February comes from the Latin word for "purification" and was the last month of the calendar years until around 450 B.C. 

The birthstone of this month is the amethyst which comes from the Greek word for "not intoxicate). It's a semiprecious quartz stone, mostly violet. 

Enjoy this month with the beautiful watercolour painting by Hanka Koebsch. 
I always love those very first flowers of the year.

You can find a lot more wonderful pictures on their website here.

  1. Great watercolor. I love snow drops. They bring happy memories of my childhood.

    1. Mine, too. Always the first signs of spring after a long winter. And I love watercolours of flowers anyway.
      Have a happy February,
      Marianne
