I have always as long as I can remember
in love with the month of March .
It is a funny kind of month
winter one day
surprise; spring the next.
I delight in the winds of March
 because it is my birth month!
When I was a child I would always ask my Grandmother
to tell me the story about
the night I was born......
She would always start the story
by telling me.........
On the night you were born the March wind danced in the trees
whispering you name ...
I always plant my spring garden the second week of March
this year has been a different kind of gardening year.
At this moment it is just glorious
filled  with the joyful
 sounds of a celebration.
My white doves, Collete and Claude's two tiny eggs have hatched
now they have two little ones.

I am painting my study Blue Cloud
 is making me very happy
 as happy as eating this lemon pie.
