First day of spring

March 20, 2012 at 9:38 pm Leave a comment

Today is the first day of spring,  the equinox. The sun crosses over the equator and, according to the smart folks at National Geographic, the day is slightly longer than the night everywhere on earth. What a hopeful thought.  It snowed in Vancouver yesterday and I am still wearing my gloves and winter coat most days, but at least it is starting to look like spring.

I hope the temperature takes a cue from the flowers soon.
