First Day Of Spring (2016)

Seasonal Changes

Time: 7:14 a.m.
Temperature:–5°C (23°F)


Spring began this year with the vernal equinox on Sunday, March 20th at 12:30 a.m. Spring is a time of indecision and change, or at least the first month is always this way. Then, it settles down and we forget the winter that precedes it. As I write this, I can hear the Canadian geese honking their way home from their southern journey. This is a sign that spring is truly here, although the temperature gives no indication of the presence of Spring. Sunrise yesterday was at 7:20 a.m. The photos are taken from my sixth-floor balcony facing the park.
