Someone likened March to the ‘Month of Expectation’. After the substantial rain and lower winter temperatures we have had very recently and more snow at higher elevations this year, it is always exciting to look forward to old favourites popping up through the earth and seeing new plants in the garden centres. We usually have winds around this time and if you follow the Coptic Calendar then you will know that we may have at least three gales this month! This is caused by warm air starting to move towards any cold air still around. March can be warm or cold and I have even known it to hail, but with lengthening days and slightly higher temperatures there is no reason to stay indoors any longer when the garden is crying out for your attention! How can you not enjoy watching the buds start to break and bright green leaves begin to unfurl.
