I have been busy with work but not a lot is going on either while the yard is getting ready for #spring. Temperatures are not there yet but it definitely sounds like spring. And I love that I am seeing more Robins! When the ground is frozen, they are happy for dried fruit like raisins (make sure to keep your dogs away!), mealworms or suet nuggets.

Happy #Spring #Equinox to the Northern Hemisphere!

& Happy #Autumn Equinox to the Southern Hemisphere!

I'm currently in the latter, so here is today's celebratory #food:

(photos will have alt-text that is, hopefully, delicious!)

#kangaroo #foraged

The photo shows a gulasch.

Thick chunks of soft dark kangaroo are floating in a bright orange sauce made of diced tomatoes, red capsicum, red onion, and garlic. 
The warm hue comes from the sweet paprika powder and the depth from caraway seeds.

The gulasch is in a small white bowl.
This photo shows a piece of Australian bread.

A big quarter of a formerly round damper bread is here in profile. It shows us the crispy golden crust, with a sprig of rosemary on top, which shields the lighter, crumbly, and soft inside.

The airy bread contains chopped rosemary & sage. The dough is only roughly kneaded and has many indentations.

The damper quarter sits on a tiny beige plate with a brown rim.
The photo shows four miniature cakes.

All four cakes are about the diameter of a muffin, but the height of a cupcake.

The dough is a dark brown colour. Despite being a simple vanilla base, the dark colour comes from wild blackberries that were added to the dough.

On top of the cakes is a coulis, a strained fruit pureé, also made of wild blackberries. For aesthetics, a little dusting of powdered sugar was added to the edges of the cakes, and each one has three blueberries in the centres.

A short #Spring #Equinox #story I wrote a few years ago.

“Spring is like walking up a big hill,” Jill said, leaping effortlessly up the rocky slope as I scrambled behind breathlessly.

“How is it like…?” I panted.

“You can’t just flow from winter to spring, darkness to light, with no effort,” she explained.

“The dark isn’t threatening if you can simply step out of it,” Jack added.

“But spring comes along without us doing anything,” I countered. I stopped at a steep break in the path in front of me, looking for a foothold. They each reached down and offered me a hand. I took both and they pulled me up.

“Not doing anything?” She asked. “What about winter colds, post-Christmas blues, spring cleaning…”

“Getting out and about, getting fit again, waking from hibernation,” He continued.

“But it would still turn to spring if we didn’t do any of that,” I said, a bit bewildered. “As the days grow longer, daffodils would bloom, frogspawn would fill the ponds, hawthorn leaves, the sap rising…”

“Yes, spring would still come, but you would be stuck in winter,” Jack said.

“Not everyone makes it,” Jill nodded in agreement.

I shuddered as I finally understood. If you didn’t work to wake yourself up at the end of winter, you’d sleep. Forever. Not the light-hearted chat I was expecting after they’d suggested an equinox outing.

I resigned myself to soldiering on to the top of the hill, seeking spring and light. A chill wind carried a wispy cloud towards us. As I stepped through the mist, I spotted Jack ahead of me to the left, just in time to see him turn into a large brown hare and bound off ahead.

“Did you see—” I said to Jill, but she had already turned into a stream, somehow climbing the hill despite flowing down it.

“I guess I’ll turn into a leaf and float to the top!” I declared. I waited a few seconds in anticipation. Sadly, it didn’t happen, and I trudged on up the path.

The last stretch was steep and slippery in the thickening mist. Darkest before the dawn, I said to myself, trying to focus on the days to come, on light and warmth. Suddenly I emerged at the peak into gentle sunlight, a warm breeze blowing. They were sitting nearby on the moist grass, taking in the view, looking human again.

“It’s all about the balance,” Jill was saying, as I collapsed to the ground between them.

I regained my breath, and gazed at the surrounding sunny hills and fields coming into spring. I smiled.

“Well done,” Jack said. “You survived another winter.”

Today is the first day of autumn🍂 in Chile, & the first day of spring🌸 for the northern hemisphere.

Astronomically, the Earth's axial tilt is exactly perpendicular to the sun's light. That means day & night both last about 12 hours everywhere on the globe!

Happy equinox to all—and to those of us in the north, happy first day of spring!

Here's a poem to celebrate, thanks to the Poetry Today newsletter of Maya C. Popa. You can find more from Maya here:

#poetry #poem #spring #equinox #HarlemRenaissance

At the Spring Dawn, by Angelina Weld Grimké - 1880-1958
I watched the dawn come, Watched the spring dawn come. And the red sun shouldered his way up
Through the grey, through the blue,
Through the lilac mists.
The quiet of it! The goodness of it!
And one bird awoke, sang, whirred
A blur of moving black against the sun,
Sang again—afar off.
And I stretched my arms to the redness of the sun,
Stretched to my finger tips,
And I laughed.
Ah! It is good to be alive, good to love,
At the dawn,
At the spring dawn.

In honor of the Equinox today, I set out to look for signs of spring besides my crocuses. I found a lone Periwinkle (Vinca), the Rhubarb making a tentative start and the Raspberries waking up.

Closeup of a blue Periwinkle (Vinca) flower in brown leaf litter a few dark green leaves show off to each side.  Bright sunshine in center, deep shade off to sides.
Very small, tightly curled rhubarb leaves emerging about an inch out of brown soil.  Bright sunshine.  Leaves are green with slight shading of pink on edges.
Very tiny raspberry shoots emerging from brown soil and mulch.  Leaves are tightly bunched, colored mostly red with a hint of green.  Bright sunshine.

Today, 20 March 2023, Is the last day of winter for the Northern Hemisphere. Spring starts ~6 hours from now at 21:23, 20 Mar 2023 UTC, or 5:23 pm EDT on the U.S. East Coast. Some trees are already blooming here.

I recently heard of a concept called "meteorological spring." It aligns seasons with the month/year boundaries of the calendar. If you prefer using that, then spring will start April Fools Day. :)
