Now that we've had the shortest day, now they're getting longer, but only by a second each day.
A bit more than a second a day. On that basis we'd only get about 3 minutes per day extra daylight by mid summer.
The earliest sunset was on December 12, so the evenings have been getting lighter for over a week! The latest sunrise is December 30th.
Winter solstice today
Good the days are getting lighter, spotted some daffs today up above the ground
I'VE NOTICED THE DIFFERENCE ALREADY.
I hope fellow SAD sufferers , esp Punkdoc feel the benefit soon.

See original post
Meant to say, it's about a minute or two.
It gets more as the weeks go.

Well there's an optimist.
Yes it is in a way reassuring. It will take its time but once we are well into January you do begin to see the improvements.
It also means that we're only 6 months away from the days getting shorter again
I had almost forgotten about it....
Thanks for reminding!! Time for me to plant gladiolus. Waited for this for such a long time.....
