Vernal Equinox is the time of year when our star, called the Sun or Sol, starts to favor the northern hemisphere and warmer temperatures begin to arrive. This is the time of year we call Spring. Warm colors return to our landscapes: warm greens, yellows, and browns, and soft pinks, blues, and purples. Trees bud, leaf out, and blossom. Crocuses, pansies, daffodils, hyacinths, and tulips once again decorate our gardens, bringing bees and other insects. Spring is a time of rejuvenation and rebirth, a time to let go of the past and to look to the future.
