It’s March, and Spring is nearly here! Yay! Here at Blue Mountain, the spring, or vernal, equinox happens on Friday, March 20 at 6:45 PM. We are so ready. The equinox marks the moment the Sun crosses the celestial equator – the imaginary line in the sky above the Earth’s equator – from south to north. The equinox is the day of the year when light and dark are equal and balanced. (It’s said that on this day you can balance an egg on its end.)
Spring is a time of hope and renewal. Nature is always dealing with adversity, yet continually renews itself in spring. Even after the coldest, frostiest, most challenging winter, spring arrives. That gives us all a reason to be optimistic.
Part of renewal is letting go of what you don’t need. Maybe you’ve been storing things you don’t use, that other people desperately need. But spring cleaning isn’t just about getting rid of the clutter. It’s about making room for new things in your life, things that uplift your spirit, like taking a class, tending a garden, and entertaining friends.
Spring is a great time to renew old friendships that have been hibernating over the winter. Blue Mountain has many friendship and encouragement cards designed to put you back in touch and uplift someone’s spirit. On March 17th, we honor St. Patrick who brought Christianity to the Emerald Isles. We’ve designed a beautiful new card with an adorable Border Collie puppy, featuring a dulcimer playing an Irish classic. Afterall, everyone is a little bit Irish on St. Patrick’s Day!
We wanted to offer our friends and fans a beautiful Spring-inspired download for your desktop background, your phone background, or even your Facebook cover image.
