“Spring Equinox 2017 in Northern Hemisphere was at 10:28 on Monday, 20 March”
Today is officially the beginning of Spring. The first day leading towards a gorgeous spring and, hopefully, wonderful summer (please, please, please).
Although it has not been a hard winter, everywhere is wet and mud. We are all very fed up and just want the grass to grow.
I spent the afternoon dropping off post, driving around a bit and generally taking photos in the drizzle that is the newly arrived Shetland spring weather, replacing the sheet rain and gales for the time being.
I have it on good authority that these are Widgeons (Anas penelope). I wish they had been a bit nearer – they were very pretty, especially Mr W. I might, on a nice day, go and have another look for some more. I have a soft spot for ducks.
Visibility in the drizzle was not brilliant but still, Shetland looks good in most weathers.
There is a point, though, when it is raining too much for me to take my camera out.
So I just stayed in the car and drove around enjoying the scenery.
Roll on Spring, please. Off we go. Green grass and sitting outside!
