I was thinking recently, since I had an extra leap day to do so, about spring. Then again, when we lost an hour springing forward. Not yet having enough coffee to compensate for the lost hour of sleep, I looked up the first day of spring in 2020. Did you know spring arrives early this year?
According to the Old Farmers Almanac website, “For much of the last century, the spring equinox has occurred on March 20 or 21. This year, however, the equinox happens on the 19th in all U.S. time zones, making it the earliest spring we’ll have seen in our lives (so far). The last time spring arrived this early was in 1896—a whopping 124 years ago!”
Nature is leaping early, too! With the mild winter we’ve had things are sprouting all over the garden and so many trees are in bloom. And Village Frame and Gallery is starting our Leap Into Spring Sale early! Beginning Tuesday, March 10th through Saturday, March 21st save a spring worthy 15% on all your new custom framing projects!
