Spring Equinox

Thanks to bythebrinny for reminding me that it is the spring equinox today here in the Northern Hemisphere.  It’s funny how we like to put labels on days. And every year those labels seem to increase,  so that today we have all sorts of days from International day of happiness (also today) to Memory Day (tomorrow), or Puppy day (Thursday).

However, it does at least make sense (to me anyway) to celebrate the spring equinox. The word equinox actually refers to the time the sun is directly over the equator.  And for 2017 that was 10.28 on the 20th March. With approximately 12 hours light and 12 hours dark, it seems a good time to consider the start real start of spring. So happy Equinox everyone
