March Days


It was one of those March days when the sun shines hot
and the wind blows cold: when it is summer in the light,
and winter in the shade.
~Charles Dickens

You've given us a beautiful picture which is very appropriate for March. I really like the Dickens quote.

Beautiful picture, Jo... We did enjoy the sunshine today --but that wind is still cold... It's supposed to warm up gradually all weekend. Yeah!!!!

Have a great weekend.
Hugs,
Betsy

As a child my mother always said that March comes in like a lion and goes out like a lamb.I remember March being very windy,I suppose that was what she meant.
Here,it is calm,very frosty in the mornings,but the sun has a little warmth to it by mid day,then a return to frost again in the evening.
I love the picture and the quote,it is very apt.

We have clear skies and frost this morning, and yesterday was like that: warm in the sun and chilly in the shade. Very nice quote from Dickins.

That certainly describes weather in Idaho yesterday. That's a lovely photo. So serene, so peaceful.

I'm so grateful I found your blog. It was a delight to gingerly scroll through it, reading and stopping to take in the sites! I am from the Chattanooga, TN area.

It is still to cold for me, if that wind will ever stop I could sit out in the sun.

the poem fits our day perfectly today. we woke up to 42 degrees and the sun is shining so bright it hurts my eyes. In the shade it is very cool but in the sun it is hot summer time.

Cheers!

It is a nice quote. You find and keep the neatest quotes.

Great shot, could almost be over here in Ireland with all that green,

Waiting for those days to get up here to Iowa! We are beginning to lose our snow but it will take time.

I join the rest in complimenting you on finding your quotes. I may be putting them on some bulletin boards at school.

Take care.
