March Lamb NOT

Grandma C had a saying for everything. In March we could count on her saying at least once and often more times than we cared to listen "March comes in like a lion and out like a lamb". I can agree with the Lion part of the saying because we had the ice storm which we are still cleaning up from at the first of the month. Today we are having constant snow flurries and just a few moments ago, we had a little sleet storm. 
 It was bouncing so hard off the top of the house, I thought some Angel had dropped a box of air soft pellets. 
I did not venture outside but Maggie had to go outside but did not stay long. She did her business and returned with little white balls all over her black back. 
 I went to the kitchen to see what birds were about and found a female Cardinal having a snack with a Tufted Titmouse. 
All at once the sun poked it's head out and I got a Female Cardinal on the drift wood plus yawl can see one of the two new flower pots that Prince got me. The other ones I had had for years and the bottoms were falling out. These pots are larger but I can put more flowers in them. 
 A male Cardinal sitting in the Holly Tree awaiting his turn at the feeder. I love when the sun shines on these little fellows as the red becomes a brilliant shade. 
As I was writing this post. we are having a heavy snow shower and you cannot see the hills as in this photo. Old Man Winter needs to listen to Mother Nature and go away and let it be Spring today. I guess the ole fool cannot tell time.  
The Kitty Justice is that March's Lamb has a bad " A-- " attitude here in Tennessee.

Boy! You're going to be over the moon when all that crazy weather disappears. It's been horrendous for you all.

What beautiful little fell the Cardinal is.

May the sun shine brightly on you all very soon. :)

Had never heard that saying before. Great pictures and indeed spring is on its way.

It is really crazy indeed. Saturday the sun was out and it was warm so we worked in the yard and I took photos of the blooms in the yard. Peace

Growing up around Grandma C, she is constantly telling me stuff as this in my mind. Some I impart others I just keep a lid on for now. I was a small child when my father's mother died so Grandma C was the only grandmother I ever really knew. I thought all Grandmothers were like her. She was unfortunately a lady with Obsessive Cleaning disorder before folks knew about OCD. She loved it when people would come over and tell her that her house was so clean you could eat off the floors. That was not her only talent as she was one of the best baker in Smith County. If she had wanted to she could have had a bakery. Peace

It came in like a lion here too. And I think it is going to go out like a lion also. Booooo!!

You may be on the other side of the states but it appears our weather reflects the same. Maybe next month Lady Spring will come and stay in our areas. Peace
