Even though it was “June Gloom” weather, the low lying clouds acted as a blanket that kept guests warm as they sipped bright green apple martinis and then gathered under a canopy of ancient oak trees for a superb dinner catered by the Patina Group.

Ah, the sun is shining and the air is warming up — it feels like spring — and two days hence it will be official. The spring equinox will occur at precisely 10:32 a.m. on Saturday. Rituals and traditions that herald the vernal equinox have been celebrated since the beginning of recorded history and even before that via the story tellers. It is a time of renewing and the beginning of the return of food sources sprouting from the earth. As I wandered about the Internet looking at various writings about the season, I was surprised to read that the early Egyptians built the Great Sphinx so that it points directly toward the rising sun on the day of the vernal equinox.
