You know it's spring when you get up to cook breakfast and you don't have to turn the lights on! This morning when I came out to the kitchen the room was light and there was no need to turn on lights. What a treat! The sun rose at 7:01 and tonight it sets at 6:29 so we get about 11 1/2 hours of sunlight.

Now I will enjoy this treat for only four more days as the time changes to daylight savings time. Then I will be making breakfast in the dark for a few weeks. When the time does change we will instantly get long evenings. So next week the sun will set between 7:35 and 7:40. It will be very pleasant for evening walks from now on.
So it doesn't matter what end we get the daylight on it still means the days are getting longer.
