While camping and hiking in the woods of the Ozarks during recent weeks, I have managed to avoid the April snows of the Northland. Instead of looking out onto a ground coated with several inches of wet snow, I’m able to be immersed in a covering of another type.

When travelling in the south during April, I feel like I’m looking into the future of what will be happening later in the spring in the Northland.

As we exit the month of March, we look forward to the new month of April that will be hosting more happenings of spring. We now have thirteen hours of daylight with sunsets nearing 8 p.m. And the sunrises shed the darkness given by daylight saving time.

Each day after March 20, I walk to a nearby swamp and search the trees along the edge and the shrubs in the swamp for a blackbird.

We are now at the vernal equinox time, the beginning of spring. And true to the name of equinox, we have an equal amount of daylight and darkness. From now until next September, the hours of light will surpass those of darkness.

Whether we like it or not, by the time we come to this time of March, winter is waning. We will continue to get chilly mornings, and snowfalls of March can be quite substantial, but with longer periods of daylight, the trend is towards warming. We have now reached the return to daylight saving time and soon will be at the vernal equinox, the first day of spring.

Tiny insects (less than a tenth of an inch) living in the leaf litter of the forest floor all year, including under the cover of the snow, are now coming to the surface.
