Admittedly, most of us are ready to relinquish winter and move swiftly along to warmer outdoor adventure. But seasonal pleasures such as ice skating, ice fishing or simply wandering across the surface of a frozen lake are still possible, and wont come again for many months once we venture across the threshold of Spring Equinox on March 20.
March brings tempestuous winds, driving a tumble of bark, branch and leaf against the garden fence. Snow recedes, whitens the ground again, then disappears. We know its March when the sun shines hot and the wind blows cold, when its summer in the light and winter in the shade. The lion makes way for the lamb of spring.
