Happy Vernal Equinox!

Yes, today is the Vernal Equinox. Daytime and nighttime are equal today and it is the first day of Spring. Today is also the only day (supposedly) that you can stand an egg up on its end. So we did! Here is a photo of said egg on my kitchen table, which is made of wood. The flower is a sweet pea from my garden as a colorful addition to this spring celebration. This is not a trick, there is nothing under the egg holding it up, it is just balancing there. We were able to stand several up in a row but I was too late with the camera as my son decided to stand up 'just one more' and they all tumbled down like dominoes and omelets were on the menu for breakfast. Delicious!
