The official first day of spring is Saturday, March 20 (photo of Carmeon Hamilton by Erin Austen Abbott).
After an atypically long and icy winter in the South, we're relieved that the spring equinox is quickly approaching. Saturday, March 20, marks the official start of spring. After this date, the Northern Hemisphere begins to tilt toward the sun, resulting in longer days and of course, warmer temperatures.

Each season brings a different sense of wonder to our 650 acres and three lakes. Spring renews and refreshes us, as the property starts to come alive again, each blade of grass and delicate blossom tilting towards the sun, too.

After the spring equinox, most places will experience more daylight than darkness. The amount of daylight each day will continue to increase until the summer solstice in June, in which the longest period of daylight occurs. We look forward to welcoming you to experience Splinter Creek in all seasons, but especially now, when we are able to soak in this season of hope and joy, and of tilting toward the sun.
If you've been curious about Splinter Creek, please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org to visit the property during our Spring Land Day event on Saturday, April 10 from 1-4 p.m.
