We’ve come to expect the month of March to go out like a lamb, but March 2014 continues to be a problem child right to its last day.
It dropped a surprize sleet/snow mix – perhaps as an early April Fools joke – over much of Connecticut today.
Such weather, after the calendar start of spring, brings moans and groans. I almost joined in with my own complaint, then I took a walk to see how the crocus held up to the unwelcome precipitation.
The crocus didn’t seem to mind the snow.
Whether with friends or alone, each stood in defiance of the frozen stuff that fell from the sky.
It’s tough to moan and grown when such simple beauty in right under your nose … another lesson learned from the garden.
So long, March. You tried to hold spring back, but she’s budding out in spite of your chill.
