Have you ever heard anyone say, "I love March, it is my favorite month."? Me either. As Garrison Keillor said, "God gave us March so that people who don't drink would know what a hangover feels like." This sounds about right. It seems like it is always cloudy and damp, the ground is wet and muddy, the yard looks like the trees puked on it, and it is stuck right between the beauty of winter, and the hope of spring. March is a good month to cut wood though. If you get it split and stacked, it will be dry enough for winter, and it is nice and cool - good working weather. March can also serve as a time to rejuvinate for the upcoming summer season. Around the Waite house, it seems like summer is just a blur of activity. Sometimes it is nice to have a month like March to just decompress and get ready for the things to come. March also is the time when I like to plan. What projects to I want to get done before fall? What will I plant in the orchard & garden this year? What will we do with the landscaping to try and add to the oasis that is our home? I guess March has its place in the rythem of life. We just need to take our cues from nature and just be dormant one more month before we burst forth into spring! BTW: I saw the first crocus shoots today, we are almost there!
