Today is the vernal equinox, astronomically the first day of Spring. This year, the vernal equinox took place on Monday, March 20 at precisely 9:28 a.m. PDT. At this time, the sun crossed over from the southern hemisphere into the northern hemisphere. During this process, the sun shone directly over the earth’s equator, bathing the earth’s northern and southern hemispheres in nearly an equal amount of sunlight.

But botanically speaking, Spring arrived a few weeks ago. Here are some local floral signs of spring.
