March folklore

Well, as I write this post March is certainly coming in like a lion! The wind is gusting around the house and whirling in the chimney. This got me thinking about old sayings about March. These are my favourites:

"When March comes in like a lion it goes out like a lamb; when March comes in like a lamb it goes out like a lion!"

"A dry March and a wet May fills the barn with hay!" or "So many mists in March, so many frosts in May".

"March winds and April showers bring forth May flowers!" and last but not least

"As mad as a March Hare"
