It's still cold out there and the furnace is still purring here in Chicago, but Spring is literally just around the corner. The Northern Hemisphere enters Spring for 2019 tomorrow, Wednesday, March 20th, at 4:58 p.m. Central Daylight Time (5:58 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time).
The vernal equinox (autumnal equinox in the Southern Hemisphere) means that the days and nights are just about equal all over the world. The word "equinox" comes from Latin words meaning "equal night".
So, as we in the Northern Hemisphere wait, here are a few beautiful still life studies of Spring flowers by Russian painter Sergey Potapov with which to welcome and ponder Spring 2019:
