Finally, the first day of Spring.
I’m afraid the picture is from last year, there’s no sign of my daffs just yet.
However, the sun has been beaming in my kitchen window all day which has been lovely. And here are some fascinating facts about March
- March starts on the same day of the week as November every year and February in common years only
- March’s birthstone is aquamarine and bloodstone. They mean courage.
- Its birth flower is the Narcissus (plant)
Superstitions associated with March
March comes in like a lion and goes out like a lamb.
This means that the first day of March is often stormy, and the last day is mild and warm … hmm the first day has been beautiful, not looking good so??
A dry March and a wet May

So far so good, please don’t let me be speaking too soon!
Finally I leave you with a sneak peek of the kitchen.
I ended up sticking with the antique grey that I used on the doors after a bit of a palava with paint colours. ‘A bit’ is an understatement actually but I won’t bore you with the details.
Happy first day of Spring everybody xx
