March 20th marks the first day of spring. But truthfully, weather wise, it seems like it already has begun. This winter has been unseasonably warm, and traditionally March is a fickle stormy month either coming in like a lion and going out like a lamb or coming in like a lamb and going out like a lion.
Remember this too, In March, July, October and May, the Ides are on the fifteenth day! Beware of the Ides of March! I love saying that phrase.
Ah Spring - when nature awakens. It's a time of new beginnings. A new flower season, a new fashion season, spring cleaning season.
Another sure sign that spring is near is all the seed catalogs coming through the mail. We have such a delight picking out the different varieties of seed we are anxious to plant in the garden. Believe it or not I think we will be planting some cold weather crops like snow peas, lettuce, radishes, collards and kale a little earlier because of this warmer weather. Other vegetables like tomatoes, peppers, squash, string beans and corn will have to wait until May.
Well another season is coming quickly upon us. Enjoy it for there will not be another like it, and time goes by so quickly. Until we meet again.
This is Raven - as the crow flies!
