You know what today is? Today is the spring equinox! :yay:
Day and night are equal now and soon the scale will tip over and we’ll have more day than night. It’s not very spring-like yet though. This is what our house looks like right now:

Our house

Plenty of snow as you can see. It’s been really cold too, with absolutely FREEZING winds. The real spring warmth probably won’t be here for another couple of weeks. But I’m in no hurry. :) My only problem with winter is the darkness, and now that that’s out of the way I can be outside and enjoy the snow a lot more.

I managed to find some birch branches to decorate for Easter too. Now that I finally have a house I can start doing all that fun decorating stuff I’ve never been able to do before. You can put branches outside your apartment door too but… it’s not really the same.

Easter branches

I probably could’ve found prettier branches, but these were already dead and laying on the ground so I picked them anyway as I don’t like cutting of living branches. If I’m making a fire or something, then sure – but not when it’s only for decoration.

Does anyone else put decorated branches on the porch like this, or is it a Scandinavian thing? And do you have spring yet where you are?
Or fall or some other season maybe? Sorry, I tend to forget about the southern hemisphere.
