St. Valentine's Day and the Marriage of the Birds

Michele Storms created this gorgeously vintage red tag  for the current Vintage Red challenge and also for Valentine's Day.

Did you know it was once believed that February 14 is the day the birds begin to find mates?  The earliest known association of Saint Valentine's Day with romance is by Geoffrey Chaucer in 1382:

For this was on seynt Volantynys day
Whan euery bryd comyth there to chese his mate.

"For this was on St. Valentine's Day,
when every bird cometh there to choose his mate."

No matter how cold and dark the Winter, Spring will always come... The birds know! This beautiful tag certainly warms up a cold day.
