Spring has arrived! How do you welcome the new season of growth?

Coming of spring means rebirth: Rebirth of nature. Trees are budding, and plants are beginning a new cycle of growth. Spring flowers are beginning to bloom. Birds and butterflies flying back to their homes. Animals waking from hibernation…

According to astronomical seasons, March 21, 2023 is Spring equinox or Vernal equinox. This is the time of the year when we have equal day and night (give or take a few minutes). At this moment, the direct rays of the Sun are shining down on the equator. One can see the sunrise and sunset at due east and west. After the vernal equinox, the direct rays of the Sun migrate north of the Equator with hours of daylight steadily growing longer.

It will take another three months, until the autumnal equinox for the periods of daylight and darkness to reach equilibrium once again.

So don’t miss the sunrise & sunset!!!!
