Welcome Spring!

March 21st, 2007

I almost forgot that yesterday was the first day of Spring.  I usually think of March 21st… but technically the Vernal Equinox took place on March 20th this year… the day that the sun is positioned above the equator, with almost equal day and night around the world.  We’ve been busy cleaning up outside, and preparing the plants and beds for the growing season.  Too much to write about, but we still enjoy the early sunrise as well as getting outside more to play.  Last week we planted two young apple trees, and this week two more.  I’ll write more on them as they leaf out this year… hopefully someday we’ll have home-grown apples!   There is much to do…

The Young One helped out by digging his own hole for HIS apple tree!  He needed a break and asked if he could borrow my hat.

The morning sun is now further to the northeast… bringing light to the sky and fields.

The forest begins to awake with the morning sun… the birds are singing and a new day has begun.
