~Autumnal Equinox And Pink Saturday~


The first sign in our beautiful Maple tree that Fall really is on the way and Geraniums blooming happily unaware on the porch below...

Hi All.....Welcome to Pink Saturday and the first day of Fall....The Northern Hemisphere's Autumnal Equinox of this year and .... did you know the reason we are a day late this year? It is because during the month of July, the earths rotation was a bit slower....somehow this will make Spring one day sooner and an extra day of Spring is always a good thing! And, did you know that this is the only day of the year that earth is straight on her axis and all the countries will have the same amount of light and darkness? Aren't I just a book of information? lol!!
We mustn't be late to Pink Saturday, so be sure to buzz on over to Beverly's to find everyone's posts.....thank you Bev for this special PINK day!

And, if you would like to read more about this amazing phenomenon,the Fall Equinox, here is the link to the National Geographic site to read all about it..... http://news.nationalgeographic.com/news/2011/09/110923-autumnal-equinox-northern-hemisphere-first-day-fall-2011-science/ it is truly fascinating. I am going back to read it again, as I am a bit confused about the difference between the equinox and solstices....

Did you all have a good week? I hope so.....here are a couple of new things I was busy doing this week and you can see more of them at MY WEBSITE

I am getting ready for the Fall holidays and Christmas. My sewing room has patterns and fabric all stacked and ready to go...a busy gal I will be!

Wishing you happy Fall days 'til next time....

Thanks for stopping by my blog. Your geraniums seem very happy despite the cooler weather.

I didn't know that fact about the equinox. I always thought the changing of the seasons occurred the same day each year. :) I love what you said about the geraniums blooming happily and unaware that Fall is here. My pink and white impatiens on the front porch are blooming beautifully too. I could not bear to get rid of them and replace with mums for the wedding reception so I didn't. I just painted the pumpkins white to match. LOL...HPS
