March marks a big turning point focusing on the transition from winter to spring. If you look and listen closely you can already hear & see it happening: birds are singing their spring songs, salamanders are beginning to make the journey to their vernal pools, the very earliest ephemerals are surfacing, and the tree buds are swelling, soon to bloom.
March urges us to move forward. We, ourselves, are also waking from the winter period of rest and this season reminds us to get ready - March forth (4th)! - Spring forward (DST on the 8th)!
Grow, bloom, take winter's dreams and bring them to fruition.
The first official day of Spring is March 19th.
Since 2015 we have been exploring and sharing all the amazing things we’ve found in nature.
