The Village Gallery Florist & Gift Shoppe
March is upon us, the third month of the year in both the Julian and the Gregorian calendars and the second month to have 31 days. Folklore tells us to beware if March comes in like a lamb (mild and gentle weather) to watch out for it to go out like a lion (rough and stormy). This is a month of change: the time changes (Sunday, March 12th is the beginning of Daylight Saving Time) and the season changes (March 20 is the first day of spring, the Vernal Equinox). Women's History month is celebrated during March as well as March being recognized as National Nutrition Month.
March 17th celebrates St. Patrick's Day when it seems the whole world is a bit Irish. An interesting fact about St. Patrick is that he was actually from Wales and taught the Irish using the three leaved clover about the Holy Trinity ( Father - Son - Holy Spirit ). The Village Gallery has wreaths for the occasion to show the world your colors.
March 1, 2017 is Ash Wednesday which means that Easter is not too far away. Resurrection Sunday is April 16th this year to honor and glorify our Lord Jesus. In addition to Irish green, the Village Gallery is bursting out in the colors of Easter.
Whimsical bunnies peek out of nests with cuddly chicks and larger rabbits stand guard.
Pinks and greens and yellows dot the landscape inside the florist in the shape of hats and eggs and flowers of all sorts.
The beginning of March is the beginning of the Easter season both by the calendar and the displays in the Village Gallery
March is the month for the wearing of the green to celebrate St. Patrick's Day, but it is also the month for the planting of the green to celebrate National Nutrition Month. This month is a the perfect time to put out the following plants: cabbage, cauliflower, and broccoli. Also the following seeds should be planted this month:
beets, broccoli, cabbage, carrot, Chinese cabbage, endive, kale, kohlrabi, leaf lettuce, head lettuce, mustard, garden peas, radish, rutabaga, spinach, and turnips. Seed potatoes and onion sets should also be set out now. Rolling Hills has all these seeds and more.
By the end of the month shrubs, fruit trees, some annuals, and perennials will be restocked and ready for the spring planting season.
