    I was so excited to see this content, as time has been a challenge for me these past couple of months. But my hopes were dashed when I saw the March content was focused around “spring”. Not all of your followers are in the northern hemisphere… we’re heading into Autumn here in Australia. So, it’s back to the slog for me, to come up with some content. ;-(
