Each month of the year feels to me like a certain color: January is icy clear blue, for obvious reasons. April is a vibrant hibiscus pink ripe with the promise of the warmth and colors of spring. However, February feels like deep violet red to me. Even with the cold outside, February exudes the warm colors of hearts and velvety red roses and decadent dark chocolate.
