Even though it is possibly snowing in the Costwolds, according to Doctor Beaver, by the time most of you read this in The UK, it will be

SPRING !

It arrive(s)(d) at 05:48 GMT - OK, Universal Time.

YEA! Beltaine will be here in six or so weeks, so we Naked Scientist can get naked and ... well, party!

OK where's the party - er, fertility ritual, take place?  Your 6 acres, Doctor?

It may be the 1st day of spring in the calendar but here it's grey,
cold and horrible also very unspring-like. brrrrrr
Rosalind Franklin was my first cousin and one my life's main regrets is that I never met this brilliant and beautiful lady.
She discovered the Single DNA Helix in 1953, then it was taken by Wilkins without her knowledge or agreeement.

Jim - I dare say something could be arranged

Perhaps we should discuss this further - we could be make believe pagans for a night. It would be "interesting" to say the least and we could write it up as an experiment in anthropological investigations of how the Celts lived. You know, "do it" for science.

I wouldn't have to be a make-believe pagan. I'm a real one.

Not sure that neo-pagans can really be regarded as authentic celts (after all, where are the human sacrifices).

spring (spring)  n.

                       The season between winter and summer,
                       marked by the budding and growth of
                       plants and the onset of warmer weather:
                       in the Northern Hemisphere from the
                       March equinox to the June solstice; in
                       the Southern Hemisphere from the
                       September equinox to the December
                       solstice.

That is astronomical spring. Meteorological spring begins on the first of the month.
