Saving Daylight

Daylight saving time started today.  Most of us here in Canada turned our clocks ahead by one hour ("spring ahead, fall back" is the rule), with Saskatchewan being the exception - they don't change their clocks at all.

As a result, we have more sunlight later in the day and it's darker in the morning, at least to begin with.  By the time summer rolls around, it's light very early in the morning too.  It has been happening since the winter solstice in December but this extra hour makes a huge difference.  It's such a lovely thing, as spring progresses, to see how the days lengthen slowly but surely until we reach the longest day of the year on June 21st.

I made this journal page today, both to commemorate the day and as part of this month's Journal Junkies theme. 

Stay tuned for tomorrow's post to see the other half of my journal page!
