Title: 1914P308 February Fill Dyke
Description: 1914P308
February Fill Dyke, 1881
By Benjamin Williams Leader

The scene is actually a November evening after rain. The title is taken from an old country rhyme;

February fill the dyke,
Be it black or be it white;
But if it be white,
It's the better to like.
