Haring Around Cranleigh

The hare has been a traditional symbol of fertility and reproduction in some cultures, and its courtship behaviour in the spring inspired the English idiom ‘mad as a March hare’.

Like us, they change their behaviour in the spring, when they can be seen in broad daylight chasing one another around the fields in a ‘spring frenzy’. On the other hand, we start spring cleaning, gardening, painting and decorating, getting fit, buying new clothes, all with a spring in our step and sometimes at running speed.

Take it down a gear or two, learn to relax as you go and remember the tortoise and the hare story.
