Flowering plants and trees were already past peek before April even begun, which is very unusual, but when is weather ever usual? The arrival of warmer temperatures in the month of March has set spring into action a few weeks early. I saw birds building their nests in February when we should have been shoveling 20″ of snow, but I am looking forward to the warmer weather and the vibrant colors of nature during the summer months. How about you?
For the last few nights the slender crescent moon has made its mark on the western skies shortly after sunset. As each day passes the moon will be higher during sunset. Watch on March 20th, 2010 as the Moon and the Pleiades star cluster make a close encounter. Step outside Saturdayaround 8pm EST and take a look for yourself!
