Spring A blessing.....
The four seasons (winter, spring, summer, autumn) have a huge impact on how we lead our daily lives. This ranges from the food we eat, the drinks we drink, the clothes we wear and the activities we take part in. We even listen to different music
From March to May there is spring season which is the transition period in between winter to summer. According to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Association, the seasons are caused by the Earth being tilted on its axis As the Earth revolves around the Sun, the Sun is directly over the equator. The Sun's energy is in balance between the northern and southern hemispheres. A common misconception is that the Earth is farther from the sun in winter than in summer. Actually, the Earth is closest to the sun in December, which is winter in the Northern hemisphere.
It's simple to know when spring is arriving. The sun rises in the earlier hours of the morning and sets later on in the afternoon. The days get slightly warmer. Spring flowers start to appear, birds start building their nests and the farmers deliver new-born lambs. One of the best ways to determine spring is by watching and tracking migratory animals, such as fish, bats, birds and butterflies that have an innate biological clock necessary for survival by means of eating, waking/sleeping.
Weather in spring is very varied. Some days it may be cold enough to snow, and some days it is warm enough to play out in the garden. Spring months can also be awfully windy. Weather varies though in spring, worldwide. Most of the people are delighted with this season because they can do their usual outdoor adventures, camping, walking with friends, and working for the future as well.
