THE GREAT SPRING
"It was one of those March days when the sun shines hot
and the wind blows cold: when it is summer in the light, and winter in the
shade.” I think we can all relate to these fine words from Charles Dickens’
Great Expectations. For me this time of year holds great excitement. The anticipation
of long hacks on the riverbank with my trusty mare, Molly, the doldrums of
winter a distant memory.
