'March brings breezes loud and shrill, stirs the dancing daffodil'
From my window today I can see a single daffodil in bloom. The first out, among a large clump near the hedgerow. And yes, it is dancing in the wind. It's a blustery March day here. The rooks nests so high up in the trees are swaying. It amazes me how securely made they must be. I expect the tiny birds in their eggs are used to the gentle rocking motion and when they hatch enjoy it as a baby in a crib does.
The snowdrops in my little jug are beginning to go over now, so it's time to bring the primroses in.
Primroses are one of my favourite flowers and whenever my nose touches the delicate petals and I deeply breathe in the scent I am instantly transported back to the age of about eight years old. We used to pick bunches of them and violets, tie them with wool and hang them from a long stick to make carrying them home easier.
There are green buds and shoots wherever you look now and things are beginning to wake.
Now the evenings are lighter, there is more playing outdoors for them and me. ;)
And the hens are enjoying some warmth on their wings.
I've been pottering about in my greenhouse and have planted seeds. I won't show you all that, but I will show you these that I couldn't resist....
Bunny tails! I just had to have a packet of these! :)
While we are on the subject of four legged creatures, I will mention that there are some new brown March hares in my Etsy shop at the moment. And The fox painting 'Wearing A Robe Of Gold' is now available to buy as a print.
I've been busy cutting out little wooden birds and beasts which I will show you another day. Until then, I wish you all the joys of spring!
