Have a wonderful day! Another day closer to Spring!!! ………………..and golf. 🙂

spring equinox for 2021 from the old farmer’s almanac

I really would have liked to have copied and pasted the full article you can find in the link below. This page would have looked so much more attractive. But, coping and pasting the link below is the next best thing.

The article below is about the first day of Spring. The Spring Equinox. It is very interesting. I always found the Farmer’s Almanac to be interesting.

Tomorrow, March 20th is the 1st day of Spring for 2021. I did not know this but in the Northern Hemisphere there are 3 dates March 19, 20 and 21 that Spring typically falls on. The article explains why there are three dates and which and why in 2021 it falls on the 20th this year. I thought it would fun to know this a day ahead of time, if you didn’t already.

Hey through all this COVID crap even the small things are big.

THE LINK ABOVE HAS A GREAT ARTICLE ON ROBINS. I was drinking a cup of coffee, just moments ago, when I noticed this big, beautiful robin outside our back door on a chair on our patio. I thought, great, Spring is really here. It was a sign I believe, but I wasn’t sure what. I didn’t know if Missouri Robins were a specific species or if they were the same throughout our country. So, I googled to find out more. As it turns out it is an American Robin, but Missouri has an abundance of these birds; possibly more than any area in the states. They are an interesting bird to watch. And from what I have read, they are the Rodney Dangerfield of birds. They don’t get much respect.

The robin, being so common and recognizable here in Missouri is probably taken for granted. I learned something they have in common with my favorite bird The Cardinal (no I am not talking about our baseball team). They are both divine birds, spiritually symbolic. Probably with different meanings. The robin a symbol or sign if you will of renewal. The cardinal, which I saw many (one in particular hung around for along time after the passing of my Siberian Husky, Sky), is a message everything is fine, I’m fine and you’ll be fine. Will see you again some day. Since those days a couple of years ago now, I see less cardinals. Still see them, but don’t have any in particular hang around long. I believe they give us messages, messages of hope. (note the photo of the bird above was not the same bird I saw this morning……I don’t take that good of a photo).

Symbolic characteristics and traits of a robin: The robin in the spirit world is known as the divine bird. The Robin is a symbol of good luck and the fact that spring is impending. To see a robin flying can indicate a symbol of renewal, passion and new beginnings. Alternatively, it could represent patience and wisdom
