Well, March came in like a lamb in my little corner of the Ozarks. Saturday was sunny and 65F, Sunday was sunny and 74F, although it was windy. The old saying is, "If March comes in like a lion, it goes out like a lamb." We'll see at the end of the month.
We all know that March is very changeable. This morning, it is still warm, but rain is pounding the ground, and I see lightning streaks in the distance. And we are even under a winter weather advisory for tonight and Tuesday, with snow and sleet in the forecast. This little poem sums up March nicely:
March bustles in on windy feet
And sweeps my doorstep and my street.
She washes and cleans with pounding rains,
Scrubbing the earth of winter stains.
She shakes the grime from carpet green
Till naught but fresh new blades are seen.
Then, house in order, all neat as a pin,
She ushers gentle springtime in.-
Susan Reiner, Spring Cleaning
So March is busy doing her spring cleaning even as I write this, to the sweet tune of the little peepers singing their spring song at the pond. Have a wonderful day, everyone!
Post Script, March 4th: I just found out that my friend Glo over at Young at Heart is celebrating her 65th birthday today! Happy Birthday, dear Glo! And many blessings on your special day!
