Welcome to Spring, and longer days. Unless you’re in the Southern Hemisphere. In which case, sorry, shorter days for you. Don’t worry, we’ll switch places in about six months.
And yes, I know days actually start getting longer/shorter at solstices, YOU NERD.
After a fortnight of on and off 35-40 degree Celsius temperatures (90-104 for those who can’t use the metric system) I’m longing for the cooler shorter days.
Lovely photo, John. Welcome to Spring!
No, they start getting longer/shorter at Equinoxes.
Solstices are the halfway points between equinoxes.
Days have been getting longer for 3mo now.
Whoops. I screwed the pooch on that. sigh
As an inhabitant of the Southern Hemisphere, I graciously allow you to borrow some of our sunshine for the next few months – please return it when you’re finished with it!
I saw Equinox Sunset open for Strawberry Alarm Clock.
One fine morning in the middle of the Precession of the Equinoxes…. That very next morning, when there was nothing left of the Equinoxes, because the Precession had preceded according to precedent…
