Day 117: Spring is here, at least according to the calendar! There are many signs that spring could be here.

I have a friend who has seen a robin in north central Montana. I have been hearing a plethora of different birds singing in the morning.

The official start of spring, known as the vernal equinox is today, March 20 at 12:15 p.m., for those of us in the northern hemisphere. Today the night and the day are exactly equal in length.

I thought spring would never get here! We can celebrate that those long, dark days of cold and snow are mostly in the past, for this year. That is not to say that we won’t get any more snow, which in Montana can happen any month of the year!

Even though I am fair haired and fair skinned, I love the sun! It doesn’t always love me though. The feel of the warm sun’s rays on my face and back is so welcoming! On close inspection I notice the grass starting to green up. The animals are frisky and people get a spring in their step, attitudes improve. It’s ALL GOOD!

Go out and enjoy the first day of spring! If you are in the southern hemisphere, go out and enjoy the first day of autumn!

What will you be doing today?
