Spring is around the corner.
The March 20, 2013 vernal equinox (at 7:02 AM, Eastern Daylight Time [EDT]) indicates the beginning of this happy season! The word equinox is taken from the Latin words meaning equal night. So, on March 20, our days and nights will last about the same time.
Longer days and shorter nights make exciting times.
What happens in spring? Lots of things! Mother Nature causes warming temperatures; sleeping plants and trees begin grow, bud and flower again. Birds mate and fix up their nests. People begin to plant gardens, and make plans for summer holidays.
Spring cleaning time is here, so be on the lookout for an increase in yard, tag and estate sales. Look for auctions! Look for more new old stuff at thrift and consignment stores.
You never know what you will find!
Here on OLA, we are gearing up for a new online presence. We shopkeepers are updating, editing and revising our OLA stores--so look for lots of good changes in the near future.
Until next time,
