“The March wind roars Like a lion in the sky, And makes us shiver As he passes by. When winds are soft, And the days are warm and clear, Just like a gentle lamb, Then spring is here.” – Author Unknown How quickly the wheel of the year is turning. Here we are fast approaching

I have the privilege of living in the Highlands of Scotland in a small cottage up in the brae’s with the wide blue of the Moray Firth to my left and snow capped mountains to my right. I can sit in the window and be bathed in golden sunlight while watching the rain being blown
