Spring

Spring is finally here. It officially began with the vernal equinox which was yesterday at 7:02 A.M. (EDT)  in the Northern Hemisphere. The word equinox is derived from the Latin words meaning “equal night.” Days and nights are approximately equal everywhere and the Sun rises and sets due east and west.

The beginning of spring brings hopes of warmer weather and enjoying more time outside. The flowers are starting to bud, our birds are returning and spring garden flags are being displayed.  If you haven't cleaned out your birdhouses now is definitely the time.  Its also time to plant early cool weather flowers.  I scatter all sorts of flower seeds this early.  I buy a lot of them at the dollar store so they are cheap and I figure its worth the risk of a frost in hopes of early blooms.  I'm always amazed at how many actually survive.  I use the flower mixtures so its a fun guessing game sometimes as to what made it until they flower.
