IT’S SPRING! That reminds me of this old saying,” April showers bring May flowers.” That saying means that sometimes it rains a lot in April, but then in May, many flowers bloom thanks to the water from the rain.
The weather in spring is warmer than Winter but not as warm as summer. In spring the days are longer than in winter, and more hours of sunlight. Some areas get rain in the spring.
Spring is the season between winter and summer. It takes one year for the earth to orbit around the sun, so by the time it is a new spring again, the earth will have orbited the sun one time. In the Northern Hemisphere, spring begins on March 20. But if you live in the Southern Hemisphere, spring begins in late September and fall begins in late March.
Are you wondering what animals do in the spring? Some animals migrate to warmer places for the winter then migrate back in spring. For example, recently where I live we experienced a migration of butterflies moving from the south to the north. Also, in the spring most birds lay their eggs. Later, the eggs hatch into little baby birds!
In the U.S., we celebrate Earth Day in the spring. We learn how our planet is changing and find out what we can do to help the environment. It is a chance to help the community and learn about how our forests are changing.
One of my favorite things to do in the spring is to celebrate Easter.
I also like to take pictures of flowers. Here are some photos I took of some beautiful spring flowers.
