Annually the vernal equinox occurs on March 19, 20 or 21 in the Northern Hemisphere. The vernal equinox happens when the sun crosses the imaginary line, AKA the celestial equator, from South to North in the sky above the Earth's equator. Spring, 2023, begins Monday, March 20 and continues until Wednesday, June 21.
|03/17/2023: My dear friend Rosa shared this picture from her place near |
Villanueva, NM, which is mostly East of Santa Fe on I-40.
|Does not look like Spring at Lake Tahoe|
where Dwight's niece lives.
She sent me this picture taken from
her dining room window.
Ribes sanguineum var. glutinosum ( ‘Heart’s Delight’)
A close up picture
of the lowest hanging flowers
|and the entire plant on a|
lovely sunny day
a rarity these days.
|Frequently I notice that the Wild Birds Unlimited |
Woodpeckers cylinder is covered
with Bushtits. I simply love these cute little birds!
I am hoping as the coyote bushes grow
and produce more flowers hence seeds
they will visit those.
At MuRefuge they certainly did.
