And it's March ...

Um, March. Really? Already?

I had to include this Instagram picture of February turning into March that I took when I was still on track with the photo a day challenge [we won't speak of that again this month!].

But I love this picture which, like many great images, was a bit of a fluke.  I opened the door for my light and the gentle breeze lifted the calendar.

The calendar is a Stendig calendar, which also hangs in the MOMA. It was part of my Quarterly subscription from swiss miss earlier this year and hangs in our hallway.

It’s a pretty gardenia with a busy little ant scurrying along the edge gracing the March calendar. With a little bit of green for St Patrick’s Day this month.

Marching on to some facts about the third month of the year.

  • March starts on the same day of the week as November every year, and February in non-leap years.
  • It’s the change of seasons ~ autumn here in the southern hemisphere and spring in the north.
  • The name of March comes from Latin Martius, the first month of the earliest Roman calendar.
  • It was named for Mars, the Roman god of war who was also regarded as a guardian of agriculture and an ancestor of the Roman people through his sons Romulus and Remus. His month Martius was the beginning of the season for both farming and warfare.
  • Go figure! It’s World Maths Day on the first Wednesday in March and International Women’s Day on March 8.
  • And Pi Day on  March 14
  • The equinox, named the vernal or spring equinox in the northern hemisphere and the autumnal equinox in the southern hemisphere, occurs on dates varying from March 19 toMarch 21.
  • Francophiles unite! It’s International Francophone Day on March 22.
  • Clap along if you feel like happiness is the truth! It’s International Day of Happiness on March 20
  • March’s birthstones are aquamarine and bloodstone, these stones symbolise courage, and its birth flower is the daffodil.
