Spring Equinox

The spring equinox is celebrated in a variety of ways from the simple appreciation of warmer weather and the first flowers of the year to cultural or spiritual holidays such as Easter, Passover, the Cherry Blossom Festival in Japan and countless agricultural or crop planting ritual holidays and celebrations worldwide.
There are two equinox events a year, one in March and the other in September; spring and fall. Technically an equinox marks the period that the Earth’s axis is neither inclined away from, nor towards the Sun, or a calendar period where the day and night period are of equal length. For most people an equinox is synonymous with day light savings clock adjustment or, as countless ancestors before, spring blossoms and autumn harvests or the end or beginning of the harsh, cold weather season.

The month of March brings the first flower blossoms in the landscape, compelling nature lovers to anticipate longer days and gardening tasks where winter thaws allow it. Oberon Design offers several spring flower images for our line of leather covers for iPad, Kindle and Nook devices, refillable leather journals, handbags, smart phone wallets, and Britannia pewter jewelry.  We offer original wild rose and bearded iris designs and two art nouveau images, a thistle flower based on Aubrey Beardsley’s design and a dandelion and dragonfly image based on a M.P. Verneuil illustration.
