We have just been told to expect SNOW on Monday. Back go all the seeds into their winter quarters.

Ewww Is Right!

There's a bit of Folklore for the end of March:

"The last three days of March have a reputation for being stormy. Scottish folklore proposes that these three days were borrowed from April so that the month of March might extend his power. Certainly no one of a superstitious nature would even consider borrowing or lending on these days. Asking to borrow something on these days was once considered proof that the borrower intended to use the item in witchcraft against the lender.

March borrowed from April
Three days, and they were ill
The first was snow and sleet
The next was cold and wet
The third was such a freeze
The birds’ legs stuck to trees.

So it may be that March Goes Out Like a Lion!

We've certainly had our teaser days.
