f. 2v, March

Aries, the ram; an early spring landscape with men pruning the still leafless trees with sickles, a woman with baskets and a man digging before a house. The foreground is enclosed by a wattle fence with a gate. Pruning and digging is common for the March labour, both in Flanders and France. These subjects for March are in a tradition going back to the twelfth century.
