After a promise of Spring, the Winter throws a reminder that we are not there yet. March enters like a lion

March 10, 2013

The Daffodils, or as I prefer to know them, the Lent Lilies in the Churchyard have paused. They shiver and wait in that pre flowering stage. This follows a short period of over optimistic bud burst centring on the spring-like warmth of last Tuesday. On that day the e hedgerow buds seemed to just about to come into leaf. The spirits were lifted and all was well. Since then the ditches have been filled to the brim, the Bure has burst it’s banks and every field looks like February again. Two inches of rain have fallen in two days and the thought of planting potatoes has to be out the back of our mind.

  1. Beautifully written! Our soil was too dry a week ago and it is now waterlogged and lying beneath a layer of snow. Here’s hoping that March goes out like a lamb!
