I declared spring on 1st March but I thought I should just mention that we have had the spring equinox and it is therefore OFFICIALLY spring now. Hooray!
Being a bit of a pedant I felt compelled to look up equinox to find out what it was exactly and discovered that there is also an equilux. This is when the day is half day and half night and may not necessarily occur on the same day as the equinox. All very interesting.
The good news is that every day is going to get a teensy bit lighter for a couple of months so lots more light to enjoy and do stuff in. Lovely
