March 1st

Hooray! Today is March 1st! The month spring starts:)) It is still a frozen one for the most part but the days are longer, the sun feels stronger and it just feels good to be out of February.
I LOVE poppies. These were taken in Alberta.
Today we are expecting a freezing rain storm, speaking of frozen.....
Did you enjoy the rainbow interviews? I have a few more in the wings. Fun to think about colour in that way.
I've got a painting on the go I really should get to today. Hope you have a happy one:)

Yay! March is here, and down South we're supposed to get 6 inches of snow today! Hope we'll all be thawing out soon and enjoying beautiful flowers like those poppies.

9" of snow coming here - I also blogged about snow today!

Poppies are so beautiful - it is a shame the flower only lasts 1 day.

I am reluctant to post this...I'm equally excited about the arrival of March.
However, living in the southern tip of California, snow, ice, and even rain, seldom if ever grace my door step.
I miss the highlands, with it's snow and ice, frightfully cold gusts.
But for now, as the lacking of your fine weather allows me to miss my home.
I think of poppies!
California poppies can be seen along highways here.
Happy spring to you too!
I'm jealous of your in coming rains!

We woke to lots of snow here yesterday morning and by 1: or so it was already mostly melted. It's all gone today. I am soooo ready for Spring.

Loved the interviews. What a superb idea. We need the color this time of year.
Looking forward to that new painting!

I love poppies, too. I have a dream that one day I'll walk through a field of them. Your celebration for March's arrival has me smiling today. :)
