Makes Me Happy Monday 3/1

What makes me happy today? Its the first day of March!! Here in the northern hemisphere, March 1st is the first day of meteorological spring. Of course it's supposed to snow a bit today, but we always get at least one big snow storm in March anyway.

The snow never last long when it falls in March; you can count on the warm March sun to make fast work of any snow drifts we may have. The trees start to bud, and my crocus  bulbs start to peek out of the ground, the promise of purple and white flowers to come.

And for some brave souls; the mere mention of the word "Spring" is  enough to 
break out the warm weather wardrobe. Even for a day of skiing!
March Madness??

(PS: don't forget to check out the free BOMs on my sidebar... they will all be updating with the new March blocks this week... enjoy!)


  1. WOW! Trees budding and crocuses, we still have at least another month and a half to go! Nice to see that it is warming up though! ♥

  2. I was relieved too, to turn the corner into March. Here in Ohio we had 31"+ of snow during February (nothing in comaprison to what y'all see - but enough to make me whine about it). I think we will see more sun and less snow with each passing day. woo hoo!

  3. Crocuses are coming up through the ground here too. Did you know the flower in my post? I haven't had the cance to stop by before, but here I am, and will be back!
    Thanks for the directions to the BOM, it is very promising, I kept the first!

  4. Lovely! I think spring is still a long way off...

  5. Hello Sheila, just love your crocus bulb, I tried them a few years back but I think we need colder weather.Or maybe I should have looked after it a bit better!!! Have a wonderful week.
