The saying goes "March comes in like a lion and goes out like a lamb". (Although that is not always true because last year it came in like a lion and went out like a lion, too. So not fair.) But at least it is now Spring (from the meteorological perspective).
On the lion note, though, this seems to be the original Hubert (the Harris Bank Lion). It is on the Harris Bank Building built, if my roman numeral translation is correct, in 1910.
