Happy Vernal Equinox Day

A bit early but it's past midnight here and therefore technically the first day of spring. It's also a National holiday in Japan (we get a day off for the Autumnal Equinox too- love Japan's nature-based holidays!) Anyway, to celebrate, I thought I'd have a tinker and try out a new header. Have a great day!
P.S. The bookmarks have indeed been posted and are now in the hands of Japan Post.


  1. Hi Tanabata. I love the new header with the haiku! Happy Spring!

  2. Enjoy the spring with lines:

    "Here comes the rain again falling from the stars, Drenched in my pain again becoming who we are"


  3. Thanks Robin. I was looking for a spring haiku and when I found that one about plum blossoms and dawn, that was the one! Happy Spring to you too.

    Thanks Prashant. Hope you enjoy your spring too.

  4. I love your header. It is grade A babe!

  5. Beautiful header! Very nicely done!

  6. I think it's so neat how they have holidays for the two equinoxes.

    And I love the new header!

  7. Happy spring, Nat!

    I think I've discovered the next thing I need to learn how to do on my blog. Love your new banner!

  8. Thanks Nessie, Andi, Lesley, and Nancy. It's just cropped from a picture I took this month, add a little text and voilà.
    I think Heather F. is the Queen of cool creative headers! :)

  9. thank you for the bookmarks!
