March. In like a lion, out like a lamb. I sure hope that’s true.

Yesterday was the first day of March. After one hell of a February (can we say over 7 feet of snow and bitter cold?), seeing March 1 on the calendar was a welcome sight.

I waited for Sunday all week. That might sound silly, especially since it marks the end of the weekend. But it was supposed to be in the mid-thirties, and sunny. At least that’s what the weather apps and reporters were saying. They also were talking about more snow, but that was going to be overnight, not during the day.

What was supposed to be a sun-filled March day, turned into a gray, cold, this feels like January day. With snow flurries starting by mid-afternoon.

The last day of February felt more like an early spring day than the first day of March.

But like the quote above, March comes in like a lion and out like a lamb. I can only hope that this quote reigns true this year.

Because March definitely came in like a lion.

Fall in New England

I’ve decided. Fall is in my favorite time of year in New England. There is just something about the change in the air, the beautiful colors and the fall foods. Pumpkin flavored everything (coffee, muffins and bread just to name a few), fresh apples and apple picking, hay rides and driving around aimlessly on a perfect Fall afternoon, camera in tow, capturing the feel and essence of what it is all about.


I had every intention to go to a farm stand and take pictures of the gourds and pumpkins, along with anything else that reminded me of fall. Unfortunately, time (and a bad cold) got in my way. I ended up right near my home – at the Artichoke, which made for the perfect backdrop for an hour of photography. While the colors still aren’t a peak, it still provided that feeling of fall in New England.
