A proverb states something to the effect that the month of March can come in like a lion and generally goes out like a lamb. That concept seems to be ever so true this year....well, at least for the first part of the proverb anyway. The month of March without a doubt has maintained its bold "lion" status with all the unpleasant cold, snowy, rainy weather stomping in on the new month's front door. But...on the other hand...think how some of us have come to appreciate the beauty of a crisp clear (snowless of course) day with temperatures moving into higher digit categories, while proceeding into the contemplation of how their spring gardens will be...all with new and fresh enthusiasm!
The month of March also kicks in with a lil' of the "green" and we all turn into just a wee bit of the Irish! In addition, we become highly motivated to turn everything the color green and find rainbows magically interesting. Ahhh...the lovely month of March...possibly the first time some of us will ever take a sip of green beer or attempt cooking corned beef with the total intent that it's a charming way to celebrate and create special moments within the month of March.
Anyway...March also likes to tickle us with a broader sneak peek of the upcoming spring season and adds in another spicy element in the form of colorful beads & feathers for a zesty Mardi Gras experience. Oh what a lil' prankster March can be by letting us all in on the magic and then....still keeping us on our toes with reality by holding on to that leftover "burr" or "roar" in the air!
Nonetheless....go with the charisma and let March be your enchanting month. Take pleasure and enjoy any of the magical charms the new month has to offer. Start that planning and action upon implementing a spring garden...it won't always be cold! Just remember to find humor in the month and enjoy. You never know....you just might find that special pot of gold patiently waiting under a colorful rainbow!
We also hope you'll take a "wee" bit of time...perhaps grab a nice cup of Irish coffee and take a peek at some of the new 2014 season bears, bunnies and gift items which have started to arrive...all adding just the perfect blossoming colors of a new and long awaited spring season. Enjoy....and don't forget to keep a watchful eye out for those magical leprechauns!
Take care now,
