Welcome Autumn:: Hello Magical March

So it's the first day of Autumn here. Thank goodness.

I got to enjoy some time outdoors with my smalls. Just me and them. It was calm. Beautiful. They'd both had huuuuge sleeps, their batteries re-charged. We played hide and seek. The babes giggled. We dug in the sand pit. Tiny sampled some. Delicious! Extra fibre! The Doctor and I dug roads and rescued trucks. I looked skywards - oh how I love to look skywards, through tree branches. It almost makes me giddy, those green leaves, that sky. Oh hello Autumn, we welcome you with open arms. We're waiting for the coloured goodness you're about to show.

Later the four of us went for a walk. A nice long walk. The Doctor rode his trike. We saw the black and white bunny again, but she hid because of the dog. Next time we hope to stroke her softness.
Welcome March, and welcome Autumn.

This is the start of my 'Magical March'. Each day I'm going to find something magical to blog about. Play along if you're feelin' it. Tell me too. (I might even go so far as to make a Magical March sidebar - I know, I know, amazing. But it is Magical March after all.)

Beautiful post Miss! I would love to attempt magical March, if I managed it daily it would be magic, but I will give it a shot. Glad the family had a great day.

I'll try to join in when I can. It's a bit hard to blog when I'm between addresses.

Here (tho no in MY house) it's March Madness which refers to basketball.

I hate to break it to you but you really have 3 more weeks of summer ahead. March 20 is the autumnal equinox for you down there. http://www.timeanddate.com/calendar/vernal-equinox.html I think it is about this time that the light changes and we 'feel' the season shifting...imho.

Autumn is my most favourite time of the year so I'm sure I might squeeze a day of magic in here and there :)
Looking forward to hearing about the magic of your March.
