Today is the Vernal Equinox! It happened precisely at 2:37 am where I live. The sun rose at exactly due east (90 degrees on the compass) and will set at exactly due west (270 degrees on the compass), which won’t happen again until next fall during the autumnal equinox.
Living in a bit of a hollow, shaded on two sides by small mountains, our place can be a bit behind when it comes to plants realizing it’s spring. As much as I love flowers, I haven’t had the energy to plant or tend to any in the past few years, so I enjoy whatever Mother Nature has seen fit to keep alive. Mostly wildflowers. Yet it’s still too early for blooms, as stick-like branches are just beginning to pop out buds that will eventually unfurl into leaves.
My writing table sits beside a large window where all sorts of wildlife pass by, and recently the robins and Steller’s jays have been very busy gathering grasses and sticks for their nests.
Wandering outside for a while in between sprinkles, I grabbed a few photos of plants that adorn our place, remaining green throughout the year. Enjoy.
