On the vernal equinox, all over the world, day and night are balanced — twelve hours of light, twelve hours of darkness. And all over the world, the sun rises due east and sets due west.  I took advantage of our afternoon sunshine on Monday, and walked around our yard to capture some signs of spring to pair with A.A. Milne’s “Daffodowndilly.”


She wore her yellow sun-bonnet,
She wore her greenest gown;
She turned to the south wind
And curtsied up and down.
She turned to the sunlight
And shook her yellow head,
And whispered to her neighbor;
“Winter i
s dead.”

This is what clean-up will look like in a couple weeks (not today).


Can you see the bee in the center of the photo?


robins, green grass, no snow
