Marching on...

The Romans made March ( a favourite thing to do) the first month of the year in their calendar. Both Ovid and Plutarch said that Martius, was named after Mars, the Roman god of war. Indeed, it often is a month of firsts—the first daffodil, robin, earthworm, skunk, cabbage.

Spring itself starts with the vernal equinox on March 20 this year ( My 14th wedding anniversary is on the 21st!)

This beautiful wet felted wall hanging was made with healing love by the students in Donovan Boy's 5th grade earlier this year.
Apart from being notoriously temperamental weather-wise. According to weather proverbs:
If March comes in like a lion, it will go out like a lamb.
If March comes in like a lamb, it will go out like a lion.
