There are several signs that signify to me that Spring is taking over the reign from Winter. One of them is the returning sun. Once again, my living room window offers spectacular sunsets, that will only intensify in beauty as the sun moves further up in the sky.
Yesterday I could watch for the first time this season a "true" sunset, as the sun did set over the horizon, this time in the southwest, instead of hiding behind the hills in the far south. To me this indicates the true beginning of the final days of winter.
On the last picture, Venus, the now retreating first star on the evening sky, can just be vaguely seen to the left.
