Today was one of those mild March days, when the sky is cloudless blue, and warmer in the sun, when the crocuses are coming up in all the yards, and the pussy willows are beginning to open.
Robins are everywhere. Cats are rolling on the sidewalks. People are out on bicycles.
It's spring for a day!
Astronomical spring begins on March 20th, with the vernal equinox. It is a time of new beginnings, with the new moon on the 17th. It is a celebration of light and life, and all green and growing things.
