    Thumbs up Happy First Day of Spring!

    Spring has sprung! Happy First Day of Spring!

    "The first day of spring is around March 20 or 21, depending on what day the vernal equinox occurs. This is when the sun sits directly above the equator on its apparent trip northward. Of course this sun isnít moving; Earth is. As Earth revolves around the sun, the top half, called the Northern Hemisphere, becomes tilted more toward the sun as winter turns to spring. Meanwhile the bottom half, the Southern Hemisphere, becomes tilted more away from the sun. The beginning of spring for us is the beginning of autumn for people in Australia and the southern parts of Africa and South America." http://www.wxdude.com/spring.html

    The vernal equinox falls on March 20 today because it is a leap year.

    Are you going to do any of the following activities today?

    I certainly hope your "Vernal Equinox" was pleasant and warm.
    Be courteous to all, but intimate with few, and let those few be well tried before you give them your confidence.

    Happy Spring!

    i had a goat once born on the vernal equinox...
    named him vern
    i miss him
    http://www.allpoetry.com/Grunts%20Girl

    We dallied under
    Vine maples and sapling alders
    Searched for lady slippers
    But instead
    Found blackberry riots and
    Desiccated branches

    An old skid road
    Brought ghost ferns and
    Hollows filled with
    Skunk cabbage
    While waves wrapped
    Intricate lacings of weeds
    'Round mule spinners

    His cyanotic eyes
    Were hard enough to make
    The sun turn tail and
    Tender enough to attract me
    To his world of illusion
