March Photo Review
“March is a month of considerable frustration – it is so near spring and yet across a great deal of the country the weather is still so violent and changeable that outdoor activity in our yards seems light years away.”
– Thalassa Cruso
I fall into the trap every year. I think that March is the first month of spring. Actually, as far back as I can remember we have not had a pleasant early spring. The weather teases us with it’s up and down behavior. One day is sunlight and pleasant temperatures and the next is dreary, cold, and possibly snowy. Rains come, and the thaw brings mud. March and I will never be close friends. I much prefer the leftover warmth of November. When we get just a hint of cold. Where pulling on a sweater feels good. Not like in March, when I resent pulling on the sweatshirt again, in order to leave the house.
There are March photos though. Of course there are. The camera doesn’t always tell the story of how frozen my fingers were. The camera focuses on the expectant faces of new bunnies and piglets and chicks. Sure signs of spring.
I hope you enjoy this glimpse in to March on our homestead, with the March Photo Review.
The March Hare?
Shearing day approaches! Hope it warms up soon.
The baby bunnies moved to the enlarged bunny house recently. They are all grown up!
“Then you should say what you mean,’ the March Hare went on. `I do,’ Alice hastily replied; `at least – at least I mean what I say – that’s the same thing, you know.’”
– Lewis Carroll
“Indoors or out, no one relaxes in March, that month of wind and taxes, the wind will presently disappear, the taxes last us all the year.”
– Ogden Nash
“It was one of those March days when the sun shines hot and the wind blows cold: when it is summer in the light, and winter in the shade.”
– Charles Dickens
