Spring Equinox

Region 16 Block of the Month (or week) 202

Theme for this 'month' - Spring

Spring Equinox What a fantastic time for looking forwards - one of the turning points of the year when day and night are both 12 hours long. What’s not to like about knowing that for three months our days get longer and longer, and warmer too. We can turn our backs on the winter and all the challenges it has brought, icy pavements, bitter cold winds. The short days when I used to go to work in the dark and return home in the dark are over. This is an optimistic time, will we have a warm summer? We know that our days will extend and give us long evenings for enjoying the outdoors. Plant life ‘springs’ into action to give us glorious colour. Birds make nests and fill them with eggs to nurture into new life.

Yes, I like the Equinox, when Earth’s journey round the Sun gives everywhere on Earth a fair share of heat and light.
