March is here, ring the bluebells!

MarchCMarch has many images in my mind. Windy, rainy, blowing in the spring on wings of bluster. When I was growing up in south Florida, it was already 90 degrees on most days in March, so it held less transitive meaning to me. But now, living in the north, the seasons live once more in the cycle of the year.
March is a time of cleaning out the staid, squirrelly shut-up home of the winter with fresh new breezes. It’s a time of hope, looking for the warmth of the future spring. It’s a time of planning, getting set for activities in the summer.
And it’s a time of mud! Yes, squelchy, messy mud everywhere. Sometimes still gripped in the slush of winter ice, sometimes in a glorious warm brown sludge. When I was a child, of course, this was reason alone to be out in the wonderful playground of the Great Outdoors. I would search the still-clinging remnants of snow for the first crocus heads to burst through their white cloaks into the cool air.
But today, with work obligations and the knowledge of whatever I dirty I have to clean, I am more circumspect in placing my feet. That’s is, perhaps, a sad thing indeed.
What are your March memories and impressions? What makes you think of March?

Celtic Fairies, Fables, and Folklore! Bestselling author (top #100 Amazon Canada, #1 in Paranormal Fantasy, Amazon Canada) Christy Nicholas, also known as Green Dragon, is an author, artist and accountant. After she failed to become an airline pilot, she quit her ceaseless pursuit of careers that begin with 'A', and decided to concentrate on her writing. Since she has Project Completion Disorder, she is one of the few authors with NO unfinished novels. Christy has her hands in many crafts, including digital art, beaded jewelry, writing, and photography. In real life, she's a CPA, but having grown up with art all around her (her mother, grandmother and great-grandmother are/were all artists), it sort of infected her, as it were. She wants to expose the incredible beauty in this world, hidden beneath the everyday grime of familiarity and habit, and share it with others. She uses characters out of time and places infused with magic and myth. Combine this love of beauty with a bit of financial sense and you get an art business. She does local art and craft shows, as well as sending her art to various science fiction conventions throughout the country and abroad. Facebook: Homepage: Blog: Twitter:

  1. March is my birth month, so I am a little biased. 🙂 “Virginia Bluebell” by Miranda Lambert is one of my favorite songs (think I’ll give it a another listen here in a sec). Most if my life was spent in the southwest, so enjoying all 4 seasons is a first for me! I am very much looking forward to the blossoms stretching out their petals. And the sun. And the thunderstorms. And rainbows….and and and.
