Although it does not officially arrive until Sunday, the birds outside my window may not have received a Mother Nature notification.

It is about time spring is finally here. The vernal equinox marks the beginning of astronomical spring in the Northern Hemisphere and it begins on Sunday. The equinox is the moment the sun's rays shine directly on Earth's equator. Sunday will be one of two days out of the year with the other being the autumnal equinox in September. Then is when the Earth's axis is tilted neither toward nor away from the sun, resulting in roughly 12 hours of daylight and 12 hours of darkness almost everywhere on Earth. It's also one of only two days each year when almost every spot on Earth – except the poles – experiences a sunrise at due east and a sunset at due west. And for the folks down under in the Southern Hemisphere, it's the autumnal equinox this Sunday, marking the first day of autumn. 

Spring is one of the four seasons, succeeding winter and preceding summer. There are various technical definitions of spring, but usage varies according to local climate, cultures, and customs. There are Spring Fashion Shows, Spring Break, Sring Rolls, Springtime For Hitler https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vz4aY2wXQHg  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o6n5ME9nVdY

Spring is often thought of as a time of rebirth: The flowers begin to bloom and the snow, darkness, and decay of winter melt away, transitioning us into a new season, according to expert #NicLoves https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qQ_ahr0t61g
