February, the month of love, warmed our spirits if not our bodies.

While the weather was certainly chilly, a few signs of the coming spring started to emerge, and our collective love of the Kawarthas shone through — as always.

From serene landscapes to colourful sunsets to winter wildlife, we had it all in February. And for that we are grateful.
