In Like a Lion, Out Like a Lamb
March roars in like a lion
So fierce,
The wind so cold,
It seems to pierce.
The month rolls on
And Spring draws near,
And March goes out
Like a lamb so dear
(by Lorie Hill)
I think March roared in this year and is starting to go out like a lamb.  Guess it just depends on where you live!  Here in the South we had a lot of rain and several cold days, in the North they've had a lot of snow.  Yesterday and today the weather has been just beautiful (although very windy today!). 
When I was a kid we had a gorgeous lilac bush in our backyard and forsythia bushes around the perimeter.  To me, that lilac bush and those forsythia bushes just screamed SPRING!  Looking back at some old photos, we had some pretty momentous occasions captured in front of that lilac bush!  Communions, prom photos, Easter photos.  That was "the" spot to get your photo taken when you were all dressed up.  I find myself doing the same thing with my girls.  We've been standing in the same spot(s) for the last 14 years for Communions, 1st Day of school, proms, 1st Day of t-ball/softball (fresh new uniforms!), graduation (pre-school, elementary school, middle school and high school!), heading off the college, etc.  Some day we'll have an engaged couple, maybe a couple of wedding photos (1 wedding per daughter, please!) and hopefully some healthy, happy beautiful grandbabies!
