  1. I like that March is a month of transition and change…winter easing into spring. It definitely brings renewal and hope.
    A great look at the month and its meanings, Karen. I loved your poem, too.
    As for daffodils, it always amazes me that something so pretty and fragile looking can stand up to such unpredictable weather. I guess that is a lesson in itself!


    1. I love March because it does mean the things I love: warmer weather, flowers blooming, trees showing new leaves or buds, and the warmth of the sun and blue skies. Thanks for sharing.


  2. Beautiful, Karen 🙂 I have always looked forward to the blooming daffodils. Mine are just starting to peek through. Xo
