Cold, life goes on and another cutie

February is soon to be March and it is unbelievable how fast this years two months has gone by. The first month of Spring is almost here, even if it does not feel like it. We still have a lot of snow here and it has been very cold the last couple of days. It has been around -16°C and it feels like -25°C, because it is blowing or the high humidity.

The funeral went well, as well as a funeral can go. Songs, words, tears and emptiness in silence.
Enjoy these flowers and poems, until next time.
