Today marks the calendar at the Vernal Equinox the point when night and day both (approximately) equal 12 hours. Then from now on our days will be longer than nighttime and the time of year when new life begins to “spring” into action.
Though we have had such a mild winter Spring seems to have started already. All the daffodils in my garden are completely out and some have even wilted. But imagine my surprise yesterday when I saw Mr & Mrs Mallard and their 11 ducklings yesterday swimming on the canal, it looks like they though spring started a month ago!
