Let’s face it – March can be a dreary month.
It’s far enough away from December that the holiday festivities are just a fuzzy memory.
It can be cold and grey, and let’s not forget windy.
But if this seems like a negative post . . . no way!!!
For this edition of Lucky Seven I have:
1. Spring arrives in March.
We all deserve a lovely spring after the winter we are experiencing.
2. The Crocuses bloom -
sometimes through the snow! Ours are purple and you know how I feel about purple.
3. Hot Cross Buns
Whether you like them or not (I do, but wouldn’t mind if the candied fruits were omitted.), they’re a sure sign that March has arrived.
4. St Patrick’s Day
I’m part Irish and I was literally raised on my grandmother’s Irish bread. (story and recipe here) I’ve already stocked up on ingredients to make a lot of it this month!
5. My oldest daughter is a March baby.
It’s the month I became a mom.
6. March is the perfect time for adding a touch of spring to the front door.
I’m going to use this wreath for Spring 2011!
7. Daylight Savings Time begins in March
(March 13th to be exact for the U.S. and Canada) and who doesn’t love more hours of daylight!!!
What do you love about March?
