The happy life in spring

At the spring (or vernal) equinox, days and nights are approximately twelve hours long, with day length increasing and night length decreasing as the season progresses. Spring and “springtime” refer to the season, and also to ideas of rejuvenation, renewal and regrowth. Spring usually occurs during the months of March, April, May or from the Vernal Equinox (March 20) to the Summer Solstice (June 21). The first day of spring is also called the vernal equinox where there is supposed to be 12 hours of daylight and 12 hours of night. Fresh buds bloom, animals awaken and the earth seems to come to life again. Farmers and gardeners plant their seeds and temperatures slowly rise. The timing of these changes varies depending upon location.

In recent decades, the funny signs of spring has been observed, which means that many phenological signs of spring are occurring earlier in many regions by around two days per decade.
