Its here.....(nearly)

By Paree
if you slowely pull the mouse along the variants,
a dullish spring day will become full of sunshine,

The festival of the spring equinox speaks of freshness and youth, of excitement and endless possibilities. Nature begins to quicken and early flowers open to the warmth of the strengthening sun, bringing the colours of lemon and yellow into our lives on the wings of a March wind
The word ‘equinox’ simply means ‘of equal length’ and refers to the twelve hours of daylight and twelve hours of darkness at this point in the year. It was originally thought to stem from two Latin words aequus meaning equal and nox meaning night. The word ‘Vernal’, as this equinox is often called, is derived from the Latin word vernus meaning ‘of spring’.”

(and whatever it means its very very welcome)

I like the combination of images and ideas as they combine to make a rather beautiful Springtime Celebration Piece. Image number 2 for me is the more appealing.
