March goes out like a lamb and we awake to warm sunshine and hazy blue skies. The cherry blossom is in full bloom on a couple of trees on the Govan Road and buds are greening and beginning to burst.
Govan Cross is redolent of a sweet, spicy cinnamon scent. Could it be wafting over from Shearer's Candles?
Sun worshippers take up the benches on the paving stones by the now defunct gents' lavvies and along the cobblestones of Water Row, you can feel the natural energy pulsating through Govan's little bit of wilderness.
