A Very Vernal Equinox To You

Every year on March 20, the father of Mother Goose calls her up.

“Did you get your egg to stand on end this morning?” he asks in his low, gruff voice.

According to Dad, this is the only day of the whole year when an egg will pose by itself for pictures, standing up unaided by human hands. Most years we forget to try this amazing science stunt, but this morning Mother Goose remembered! And dear AnnaRose was the skilled eggologist who was able to balance the egg on its end.

SPRING! We welcome you today!

And, dear readers, may all of your days be vernal and full of equinox, but especially today!

    Thanks for using this shot! I almost think this pic should have it’s own caption contest. Egg to entire fruit empire … Free at Last! Banana, to wife Avocado, Every Egg Has it’s day. Wife Avocado to Husband Banana … that tickles.

    I still think you have to balance it on the little end. ๐Ÿ˜

    Tried it. Maybe it’s the tropical weather, but it wouldn’t work here. ๐Ÿ™‚

    That’s a great photo! You could easily make a believer out of me. I love “theories” like this. LOL! However the egg works, it is spring, and that’s a reason to celebrate!
