The first day of spring

This afternoon was the spring equinox, when the hours of daylight equal the hours of night. It was a good day here: highs in the mid-70°s (F), sunny, and clear.

Bloodroot (Sanguinaria canadensis) is in flower along the front path. These were transplanted from the side garden last year, and are a welcome announcement of spring. I removed some of the leaves covering crested iris (Iris cristata) shoots under the old oak. Their flowers aren't too far off.

Please share your thoughts. I enjoy hearing from fellow nature observers, as well as whomever else drops by.
