It’s that time of year. Spring arrived at 5:29PM CDT this morning, so this is the first full day. You can watch it come at Archæoastronomy.
The air is already filled with pollen and the live oaks are dropping last year’s leaves. The azaleas have already peaked and the pear trees aren’t yet snowy with blooms.
I would note that locally we have had 12 hours or more of daylight since St. Patrick’s Day, and usually do.
