In Like a Lion

for March.

But is it going to go out like a lamb?

With only a few rays of sunshine,

for a few fleeting sunsets,

March bowled through its first weekend

with storms and snow.

Back in Cumbria and though a little quieter.  Winds more mouse like than lions breath, let mist linger on the tops of hills.  This was not a weekend for views.

I’m hoping the month departs with a bleat rather than a roar.
