March Landscape

Early spring in Christian County, Kentucky




March definitely came in like a lion here. The wind blew hard all day, and it is still blowing 10-15 mph. The overnight low is supposed to be about 18°. Brrrrr. The daffodils are almost ready to bloom, though.

I took this photo on my way home from work, late this afternoon. These trees sit on a little hill, and they are always so nicely silhouetted against the sky. The copper-toned grass may be little bluestem. It has a reputation for bright winter color, and it is native to this area.

CONTENTMENT: Keep your heart free from hate, your mind from worry, live simply, expect little, give much, sing often, pray always, forget self, think of others and their feelings, fill your heart with love, scatter sunshine. These are the tried links in the golden chain of contentment.

IT IS STILL BEST to be honest and truthful; to make the most of what we have; to be happy with simple pleasure; and to be cheerful and have courage when things go wrong.
(Laura Ingalls Wilder, 1867-1957)
