More Daylight

I am thinking back to yesterday, before we set the clocks forward, and appreciating the lengthening days. At the Winter Solstice in December the sun was setting in my neighborhood at 4:39. Yesterday it set at 6:00. Today it  will set at 7:01. That's progress! Above is a picture of March sunlight casting shadows of a fence and empty cabanas on the beach at Cape May, New Jersey.

I'm a big fan of daylight. Looking forward to the 8:33 sunsets of June.
And tomorrow's full moon will be the last one of winter. They call the March full moon the worm moon, for the earthworms that are starting to stir in the soil. Robins are celebrating on the grass around here already.
