March brings the first day of Spring with the vernal equinox, the start of new beginnings. We have had a joyful month in many ways, living up to the old adage, “Mad as a March Hare”.
Truffles were made for the occasion. A display was prepared with residents’ help. Flowers and gifts poured in . Reverend Brian Dunlop pro-vided a thoughtful DVD for us to watch and sing to. Cheltenham college sent daffodil posies which were so colourful and a sign of Spring.
Scrabble, art, exercise, prayer and praise, gardening , poetry, quizzes, crosswords, skyping all continued throughout the months as normal.
Out for a spin
At the first opportunity we went out for a drive. The blossom, views and sunshine were spectacular.
Today we can go out, they say,
The first drive out for many a day
The temperature’s high, it could be July,
We start on our way
The first thing we see, a pink canopy on every tree.
The lovely old church at Wittington, lit by the sun.
Free flowers are there, popped on a chair,
The chair it soon went, taker repent.
Past Gatcome we see, riders—two, could it be, you know who?
Near Guiting Power, see every wild flower.
The buzzards are gliding, the thermals are rising, and our spirits too.
