It is late to be writing about equinox, since it was a month ago. This year is odd, as I will experience 2 fall equinox and totally skip the arrival of spring. It came about, because, I was south of the equator for the arrival of spring, so it was the arrival of fall.
Before I left home, leaf buds, blossoms will starting to form, then in Australia and New Zealand, trees were in full foliage and starting to turn to fall colors. Then, I come back north and spring is still bursting forth.
Happy Earth Day, what amazing planet!
