Spring Fever

Catch it!  

On the first day of spring—the vernal equinox—day and night are each approximately 12 hours long (with the actual time of equal day and night, in the Northern Hemisphere, occurring a few days before the vernal equinox). The Sun crosses the celestial equator going northward; it rises exactly due east and sets exactly due west  http://www.almanac.com/content/first-day-seasons

Spring begins with the vernal equinox at 7:02 A.M. (EDT) on March 20, 2013 in the Northern Hemisphere.

The Vernal Equinox

Ah, spring! This season brings increasing daylight, warming temperatures, and the rebirth of flora and fauna.
The word equinox is derived from the Latin words meaning “equal night.” Days and nights are approximately equal everywhere and the Sun rises and sets due east and west.
TootsUncommon caught Spring Fever this weekend on a family trip to Brown County, Indiana.  

Early springtime in the woods in really stunning!  Bits of green moss, ferns, and grass poking through the dry, brown leaves!  Faded leaves hanging on trees, trickling water in tiny bits of ice!  Very Nice!  Tootsie and I have been inspired to dedicate this week of Pug Blogs to Early Spring Things - veggies, fruits, recipes for animals and humans, outdoor activities and etc.....  If you feel as inspired as we do, please check back tomorrow!!
