MARCHing right along

What’s not to love about March?  March puts a Spring in everyone’s step.  Bright, cheerful flowers bring smiles and joy.  Here’s a sampling of what’s beginning to bloom.  

The Daffodil.

The daffodil, which symbolizes new beginnings, is one of the most popular springtime flowers! It is one of the first flowers to bloom in the spring.

Upcoming: 90 minutes north of Seattle, the fields of the Skagit Valley bloom into a quilt of technicolor tulips throughout April each year. As a leading tulip production area in Washington, the Skagit Valley has a unique microclimate – much like the wine production area Woodinville.  I went one year and it was unbelievably beautiful.


Extra Reminder…Don’t forget to Spring Forward!

March 1, 2021 is the 60th day of the year 2021 in the Gregorian calendar. There are 305 days remaining until the end of the year… but we really don’t want to think that far ahead right now, do we?

Feel-good Friday: It’s April!

I think the best day of the year to ask someone to marry you is April 1st!

because if she/he accepts and you get cold feet, you always have an out – after all, it’s April Fools! 

Things to love about APRIL

For starters the Spring bouquets.  Friends brought these over last Sunday.  20160328_091519

It brings us that much closer to SUMMER.

My sisters birthday is in April (infact she was born on an Easter Sunday).

We can always put more SPRING in our step as things begin to lighten up.

In April everything seems to come to life again, birds have a lot to say, animals are in heat and some people too.

easterAfter Easter we get a long break from major holidays and can relax more.

Everything is in bloom or starting to bloom and looking much prettier.

I think the quote below (unlike mine above) from Shakespeare pretty much sums it all up:

“April hath put a spirit of youth in everything” – William Shakespeare, Sonnets.

Youth and Spirit are two of the most uplifting words in the English language.  I hope things are looking cheery and brighter for everyone.  At least for me, that’s the promise of Springtime.
