"Winds of March, we welcome you,
There is work for you to do.
Work and play and blow all day,
Blow the Winter wind away."
It's one of those days where the wind could bite you in two, but when the sun comes out it warms your face like on a summer's day.
One word of warning though. As the warmth of the sunshine tempts us out into the garden, so it tempts the pests out too! As the leaves begin to unfurl, it is too much for the slugs and snails to resist. It's time to be prepared.
Another thing to consider. The lovely clear blue sky with it's lovely warm sunshine is a warning to we gardeners. It means a very cold night, often below freezing at this time of the year, so don't be tempted to spend money at the garden centre too soon!
