In Like a Lion/Bear

Well, it’s true that March this year came in like a lion!
February had some gorgeous days, with friends on FB reporting they were seeing snowdrops
A sure sign of spring – right?
Well apparently Mother Nature thought that more winter was in order – and we’ve had snow and wind for the last week…..here.004
Those ‘clouds’ on top of the mountain behind our house….actually blowing snow!  This was the one day of sunshine we saw.
But 20 minutes down the road – almost none.  Actually yesterday I was there, and the sun was shining, the green grass bright under the blue skies – and then I came home.  It is warming slightly, and the snow on the roads is slushy on top of the ice………….and we can only hope that March will go out like a lamb!
In honor of the start to March the Quilting Canadians  BOM is the Bear’s Paw (closest thing to a lion in Canada LOL).  Here’s my block:

St. Patrick’s Day is coming – and green decorations around the house speak of the spring we’re sure to get………sometime!
Happy March!    Blessings, Peg


  1. We have pretty little snowdrops popping up here and there but its still pretty chilly!

  2. Not much sign of spring here. We're still under a foot of snow and winter appears to be holding on 'til the very last minute. Maybe daylight savings time will be the hint it needs.
