Default March Challenge - Comes in like a lion, goes out like a lamb

How about a challenge for March:

Lions, lambs, or photographs relevant to the stormy or placid nature of weather.

Just to get people thinking, this image was shot with my Canon P&S so it doesn't qualify but I will be carrying my Pentax more hoping for some weather shots

In San Francisco they talk about micro climates and instantaneous weather changes. Wait a whole month for the weather to change? From a resent business trip.

Interesting. I'll see if I can get something before month's end. Weather today is snowy off and on. But, later in the week looks warmer.

Default First leaves of Spring

Ginko biloba (taken on a windy day - couldn't hold sharp focus on the leaves).

An ancient tree, known in the fossil record, and apparently extinct in the wild, but preserved in Royal and monastic Oriental gardens for hundreds (thousands?) of years.

March came in like a lamb and is leaving like a lamb. In fact, our whole winter was a lamb. I have 2 pictures that could fit this category, one more fitting for spring (it's of a poppy covered hillside) which was taken on a hazy somewhat grey day or this sunset. Both speak to me of our ho-hum weather this year, but I personally like this picture better.

I know this shot is kind of busy, but I wanted to include the sky in the shot. It was so blue that day. This is Blow-Me-Down Mill in Cornish, NH. I would like to go back once the snow has cleared and get some shots from different angles. Like up the stream or from the other side of the creek.

We have lived here in NH for 27 years and never been to this part of the state. I definitely want to go back. There were so many things to see. We picked the one day of the week where it actually got up into the 40's.

I am assuming, since it is officially April, that its OK to vote. I'm going to go with NH Mom's mill. Its sunny with green patches which indicates the lamb, but it also shows the snow and ice that reminds us of the lion.
