The First Point Of Aries

It's here, it's here! Spring is here! My favorite time of the year. I could wax poetic about rebirth and new beginnings but I give you this picture instead. Right in my backyard the trees went from bud to bloom in just one day and my plum trees look amazing!
The vernal equinox is also known as The First Point Of Aries and I think you know what that means?!
IT'S MY BIRTHDAY! I like to celebrate birthdays for a while so I have decided that The First Point of Aries will mark the beginning of my birthday. That would mean that my birthday doesn't end until the First Point of Libra (Autumnal Equinox). I think I will spare you the non-stop partying/gift-giving and it's subsequent liver and wallet damage and end my birthday with a culmination party on April 14th. Costumes will be worn! Will you come?

The little purple flower on my patio bloomed a couple of days ago. She's always first - there's kind of a courtesy code amongst the flora that no one blooms until she does.

I like the ever-expanding birthday trend.

I few weeks ago I saw the bulbs outside my sewing area windows were starting to poke up and yesterday I saw some of my crocuses blooming in the front lawn. It's so magical to see the new life springing up.

(And yay for birthdays! Mine's coming up too!)

A quarterly birthday? Oh no!
