Yesterday, Saturday 20th March 2021, officially marked the first day of Spring for all those who dwell in the Northern Hemisphere.  That’s right, it was the Spring Equinox, one of the two days in the 12 month Gregorian calendar year that there is equal day and equal night. The other time, just in case you don’t know, is later down in the year, in September, at the time of the Autumn Equinox.

 

For me Spring represents a time of the beginning shoots of new growth after the Winter hibernation. It’s the time of year when nature starts to awaken from it’s Winter slumber and activity in the natural world starts to become more noticeable as it gradually increases, along with the lengthening of day light.

 

With the return of Springtime and what it represents for me, it seemed fitting and ‘practically perfect’ in many ways for me to put pen to paper, and fingers to the keyboard to write this first blog post whilst still in the energy of the first day of Spring.

 

So, I say a warm welcome to the season of Spring and an equally warm welcome to my blog.
