March is here!

As this is my first post in the month of March 2017, for fun I thought I'd use the five letters of March to do an acrostic of things I think of and love about this month!
(Think I'll do the same for April!)

1.  M is for Mother as this month we celebrate Mothering Sunday in the UK.

These are a couple of the cross stitch pieces I've made for this lovely occasion and the first was a gift to my own precious mother.

2. A is for theArrival of lovely new blooms and lambs signalling spring is coming! What a lovely feeling that is!

3. R is for Rain and we have more than our fair share of rain in March, but the plus point is there is more chance of seeing a pretty Rainbow!
You can just about see this arc!

4. C is for sweet little chicks too, cake and celebration of my son's birthday this month! Can't believe he'll be 16!!!

5. H is for HAPPY for lo the winter is past and the sound of birds singing fills the land!
Wishing you all a happy March!

Thanks for coming by and commenting!

    My hubby and I were just talking how the birds seem to be singing a bit more the past few weeks, I think they are just as happy to see Spring coming.
