The Vernal Equinox

Spring is the time when worms begin to emerge from the earth, ladybugs land on screen doors, green buds appear, birds chirp, flowers begin to bloom and many species of animals are born. The vernal, or spring, equinox signals the beginning of nature’s renewal in the Northern Hemisphere.

Spring is one of my favorite seasons.  I think its because after the long, cold, dreary days of Winter, I appreciate the hopefulness that life begins again.  So I wanted to share with you some photographs that bring Spring to my mind and what is to transpire in the plant and animal kingdom during the next few weeks.

Happy First Day of Spring everyone!!!!!  I don't know about you but I am really glad to say goodbye to Winter and am so looking forward to warmth and newness that Spring brings.


  1. I second your enthusiasm for spring's return through and through! Goodness, does it feel like winter has dragged on forever here this year. Hmm, it still is actually. We've had snow for the first two official days of spring. Still, even with the ongoing flurries, one can sense that winter is on its way out the door and hopefully, with a bit of luck, soon enough we'll once again have a verdant landscape and new life here as well.

    Wishing you a beautiful, joyous season!

  2. Oh my goodness, those baby animals are so stinkin' cute! This was a good way to wake up this morning, thank you! I too am so happy it is Springtime. Although, to be honest, it has felt like spring most of this winter, in my neck of he woods, so it's not so much about the season for me, it's more just that things are progressing and I am happy for that. Happy spring to you!
