mixed bouquet of spring snippings from the yard
It is the Vernal Equinox: vernal =pertaining to spring, equinox = equal, or equal amounts of daylight all over the globe. For those living in the southern hemisphere, it is the Autumnal Equinox.
The clouds moved in to cover the sun early this morning.
Today's rain, however, is not that hard, cold winter rain. Today it is a soft rain, a persistent spring shower, rain that will keep everything fresh in this verdant season, when our world goes green again.
I took my camera with me when I walked out to the street to pick up the newspaper this morning. Greening and blooming keep on happening.
Oregon grape has prickly leaves but a lovely fragrance
The full moon maple, and all maples, are beginning to bloom
The moisture streaked window blurs the bloom on the geranium cutting in the greenhouse. That's where you will find Tom this afternoon - rain-free gardening.
It's hard to believe that the daffodils will soon be done already. But as you saw above, the tulips are not far behind.
What will be left for May flowers?
Happy Spring, everyone!
