on the eve of spring

March 20 (March 21 in some years) is significant for astronomical reasons. On March 20, 2013, at precisely 7:02 A.M. EDT, the Sun will cross directly over the Earth’s equator. This moment is known as the vernal equinox in the Northern Hemisphere. For the Southern Hemisphere, this is the moment of the autumnal equinox.

In honor of the beginning of the new season here are some pictures from my garden.pw_2
