Early Arrival for Vernal Equinox 2012

Tuesday, March 20, was the 2012 Vernal or Spring Equinox, where the number of daylight and night hours are equal. There are many spring equinox rituals and celebrations, such as attempting to stand an egg on its end. Some gardeners believe that it is the best time to do spring planting, so I have several friends who have been unavailable since Tuesday as they are spending every spare minute in their gardens.
This year spring made its earliest arrival since 1896. For more information click here and click here.
