First Day Of Spring

At long last, the day has come. Spring has officially arrived! For the Northern Hemisphere, the vernal equinox occurred at 7:02 am ET this morning, Don’t know about you, but I can live with increasing daylight, warmer temps and the long awaited arrival of the first rose blooms of the season.  I hope you’ll join me this spring as we celebrate the awakening of our rose garden.

    I cannot wait to see the roses in bloom again. TO think last year we had 85 degrees and roses in May. I am afraid it will be in June this year for them and back to normal. LOL

  5. Chris, The first day of spring holds such promise! While the actuality here is less than springlike, I can enjoy the gardening season vicariously through blogs like yours — until it finally arrives here! Can’t wait. P. x
