I recently posted about having an airing on the beach. March has, to date, produced extreme variations in weather.

So far, I have walked along a sandy beach on a sunny afternoon on the 3rd March. There was little wind, the tide had just receded, depositing lots of interesting shells, stones and other little treasures to meander around at our leisure and pleasure.

Beach 3rd March

These pictures show a different kind of walk on the 14th March:

A Break in the snowy hedge


Snow Scape  March 14th

Curiously, we had 18cm of snow fall on us in the town, it was very localised. Elsewhere, snowfall was very slight.


  1. Lovely images menhir the UK really does have odd weather conditions one minute sunny and pleasant next wintry ๐Ÿ™„ methinks Spring will soon be on its way hopefully ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Hi Lillian1,

    We thought Spring just might be on its way during that first week in March. Judging by previous years, that was most unlikely, and has proved to be so. We can but hope. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Glad you like the pictures. Thanks for your kind comments.

  3. The weatherman was just saying last March we had 7 days of 80degree(27) and we havent come even close this march. It is low then high but high hasnt been more than 55degrees(13)Very wierd weather for sure

  4. March 2012 we had three weeks of good weather and were lulled into thinking we were going to have a good summer – heavens, we deserve one! Not a bit of it, the weather turned, became very cold and the ground did not warm up sufficiently even to plant out bulbs or flowers till the second week in June.

    Hanging baskets got planted up about May and people just hoped for the best. It was a very, very short blooming season.

  5. Hi PP.

    Weather similar to yours here, today. It’s cold with one icy heavy shower after another passing through. I reckon we’re in for sleet etc., too. This is when it’s good to look at pix that remind you there have recently been other types of weather.


  6. Beautiful pictures ๐Ÿ™‚
    I’m so fed up with the snow here – almost gone ,in town, thankfully , yet who knows if it is for good.

    Your walk along the beach at the beginning of the month sounds lovely !

    xx :wave:
