AS MAD AS A MARCH HARE – of course ‘we’ are all perfectly sane! Here we are in March and spring has begun according to the meteorologists – early indications are for a cold March. It was certainly bitterly cold earlier in the week and the snow is still lying on the hills. But what a stretch in the days.
A scattering of snow drops can be seen and the daffs will soon be waving.
