The Vernal Equinox

Ah, spring! This season brings increasing daylight, warming temperatures, and the rebirth of flora and fauna.

The word equinox is derived from the Latin words meaning “equal night.” Days and nights are approximately equal everywhere and the Sun rises and sets due east and west.

 

 

What are your first feelings when you see the first sprouts in the soil?

.

After several months of frigid weather most people become anxious for signs of spring, and while crocus are considered by many to be the first spring flowers, there are many minor bulbs that bloom even earlier. 

These plants are usually short in stature and have smaller flowers, but when planted in mass, they are as effective and powerful in the landscape as larger flowering bulbs such as tulips and daffodils.

Minor bulbs are often overlooked in favor of the showier larger bulbs such as daffodils, tulips, and hyacinths that bloom later in the year, but minor bulbs have a very useful and important place in the home landscape because they extend the season of bloom, giving every gardener a "jump on spring" and a longer time to enjoy flowering bulbs. 

Like other spring flowering bulbs, they are best purchased and planted in the fall, so while you may not be able to go out and buy them today, you can certainly print this article out and be ready to buy the bulbs as soon as they become available later in the year. Knowing ahead of time what you want to buy is a great advantage because you will have the benefit of having the best selection before bulb suppliers run out of stock.

So without further ado, here are a few harbingers of spring to look for in gardens over the next few weeks, or to consider planting in your yard or garden this fall.


The first bird that you know is spring is the robin and her beautiful red breast, so welcome to see her.


The days of spring mean first to me freedom of wearing heavy winter clothing, boots , mitts , hats and scarfs. The extreme cold and ice that means a restriction of going out due to the cold and walking on the slippery snow and ice. Driving is a difficulty with the winter weather of slippery roads and white out conditions and the increase of accidents and fender benders.

 

Spring brings a ritual of nice new clothes and the ability to walk and see neighbours who you have not seen all winter as we tend to hibernate in our homes and not see each other.

Spring we share and talk as we work on our gardens and see the the children and how much they have grown and hear the local news.

Gardening is definitely eitcbsjuve, and I find that my opinions sometimes even counteract one another, putting me right into gardening hypocrisy. For example, I enjoy some whimsy in the yard, as long as it doesn't cross the line into what I would consider tacky (Mickey Mouse would definitely cross that line). I might admire perfect yards, but I would never want one. I get a bit of an attitude about yards so groomed they don't look natural, or so perfectly healthy one immediately thinks of wasteful watering or use of pesticides or fertilizers. But that doesn't mean I can't admire the beauty of a flower, the artistic skill in the gardener's plant selection or landscape design, or the fact that there isn't a weed in sight.I do feel a sense of longing when gardeners talk about a scent or flower that reminds them of their mom, dad, or grandparent gardening. My parents didn't garden when I was growing up, but they do some now, with their new spouses. I never learned from another how to do all this. And as an organic gardener, I'm pretty much on my own there, too. We might talk a bit about plants, but there's a divide, too. I'm all organic, and they're not. They also aren't Internet people do they read my blog? Nope. So while we are close in other ways, gardening actually isn't a regular part of our conversations. But I feel glad that one day my kids are going to have their memories of being in the garden with their mom, and hopefully a bit of me rubs off on them.FYI, I do have dirt under my nails much of the time. But that's mainly because the dogs steal and chew up my gloves. Oh, and I do have a tattoo. Two actually. They're both tasteful and all me. One day I'll share a pic!
