In California, March is definitely the beginning of spring and all things green!

First March Fave: Storms
I love storms, especially thunderstorms, which we get very rarely.  March usually has a few pass through with magnificent cloud shows.  I especially love clouds at sunset where light and shadows show how massive these clouds can get!

Second March Fave: Green Buds
In between the storms we get clear sunny skies that wake up the plants from winter.  All around, there is a haze of fresh spring green to the bare branches.  Just in time for St. Patrick’s Day!

Third March Fave: Corned Beef and Cabbage
My favorite part about St. Patrick’s Day is having an occasion to eat corned beef and cabbage, a tradition in my family since we all love it and have some Irish in our heritage.  I don’t know why I don’t have it any other time of year.  I loved seeing the fixins’ all displayed at my local Trader Joe’s.

Fourth March Favorite: Fondue
We celebrated a friends birthday last weekend and went to The Melting Pot for dessert.  There’s nothing like melted chocolate to make me happy!  I love all the yummy items they bring you for dipping!

Fifth March Fave: Victorian Style Books
I have a new potential job in the Victorian style so I bought some books too brush up on the details of the Victorian Era.  I will definitely be adding these to my bookstore.

What are some of your March Favorites?
