The first day of spring is Thursday, March 20, the date of the vernal equinox, or spring equinox, in the northern hemisphere. The new season will begin officially at 12:57 p.m. EDT on Thursday.
Thursday – ok that is tomorrow! Really, I just got inside from shoveling about three inches of snow (I know I should not complain since just north of us they are shoveling up to 10 inches of the white stuff).
The world outside is a beautiful crisp white all over again. The small patches of ground that I had gone seeking yesterday are now covered with white. I like white – well last year I liked white. Now not so much!
Due to this winter my closet will change – the white t-shirts are going, the white summer pants are going, no white shoes, the white scarf is now hidden at the bottom of my closet with the hopes I will not see it any time soon. I am not a girl of fashion or of color. I am happy with whites, and blues but not this year. I am seeking color where ever I can find it. Red pants?? Green shoes??
We are in need of reds, oranges, purples, yellows, green and more green. The eyes and souls are tired of this white. There is a chill to the color that just does not leave you alone.
So today I leave you with a bit of warmth – not a picture of what is outside my window but of colors we are all seeking! Happy Spring!
