In like a lion

Dandelion and coltsfoot, lions of March

Dandelion and coltsfoot, lions of March

I can’t quite decide whether March has come in like a lion or not. Last night it was blowing a gale, this morning it was brilliantly sunny, and this afternoon it’s raining.

Some years ago I tried to explain the proverb ‘In like a lion, out like a lamb’ to our Italian builder. I was greeted with a puzzled expression and a comment that yes, there are lambs in March.

There are lions as well, for sure.

I went today to have a look at where our immediate neighbour had been reinforcing the drainage channels so that the road doesn’t flood (very good of him – that bit of road is past his house and we’re the only ones that use it). The wide cut that comes down from the wood above is golden – literally golden – with coltsfoot.

On the way back I saw these two yellow manes side by side, and then further on – some celandines!
