Is there anything more exciting than the first promise of spring?
Personally, I am grateful to live in a part of the world where the seasons are clearly demarcated by Nature’s travels around the Wheel of the Year.
As a quick refresher of high school science (which I paid little attention to, I can assure you), let me share the basics of what happens during the Vernal Equinox.
The spring (vernal) equinox in the Northern Hemisphere is the fall equinox in the Southern Hemisphere and vice versa. So while I, in Canada, was enjoying spring last year, my daughter, while in Australia, was celebrating the Autumnal Equinox. We celebrated with equal joy, but I was sowing seeds of hope for the year while she was harvesting what she had sown on her journey in months past.
