March on Spring

“March bustles in on windy feet and sweeps my doorstep and my street. She washes and cleans with pounding rain, scrubbing the earth of winter stains.
She shakes the grime from carpet green till naught but fresh new blades are seen.
Then house in order, all neat as a pin, she ushers gentle springtime in.” -Susan Reiner

We've had a few good days of sunshine and it has felt good to be outside working- today is still dry but a wee bit overcast – sun tomorrow again though. It's hard to believe we're already in March.

I woke up to the sound of gulls on our roof again this morning – normally l don't mind their plaintive cry but at the moment they are in the throws of courtship and mating - the incessant shrill that accompanies this is driving me barmy. I'm jumping out of bed first thing- forget the alarm clock!

We live in a seaside town so gulls come with the territory. Above is the view that they have from our home - looking south.

Most people use the term 'seagull' when referring to these birds - understandable really because there are so many of them and a lot of species. Would you recognise a first winter herring gull form a second winter lesser black-backed gull?

If you look at these gulls though you will see so many different plumage phases and markings. Ironically the common gull is the least common of the commonly seen gulls- whoa - l hope you followed that. Anyway you can read more about the different types of gulls HERE.

I'm away to get on with some chores- also waiting on a delivery to arrive. I've ordered these Kidorable rain boots for my granddaughter.

You have a nice view there Horizon, is that snow on them there hills in the distance.

Good luck with the delivery. I've been waiting for something for over a week now, it beggars belief that in this day and age it can take eight days to deliver something two hundred miles up the motorway, it didn't take that long to get to the moon did it? I'm thinking that next time it will be quicker to walk down to London and pick it up myself.

Hi Sarah ~~ I am so glad the weather is better for you and spring is there. Autumn is here. Love the boots
Thank you so much for your concern for my hospital visit and I will be so glad when it is over (tomorrow).
I am too old now not o worry about these things. Take care dear friend
Love and Hugs, Merle.

She will love these boots!! Everytime I see something like that I want to buy it for my own granddaughter but my daughter in law is very fussy about what she wants her daughter to wear so I hardly ever dare buy clothes and such.

Love the view you have from your house, how gorgeous! We call them seagulls over here but I wouldn't be able to tell you which species they are!! lol All I know is that they eat everything in sight and I call them garbage collectors:-) I think I'd go mad as well if I had to hear them incessantly like that.

It's sunny here today but -13c (9F) so winter still has us in its grip. Lots of snow to melt yet as well!! xoxo
