When Does Spring Start?
Spring officially begins on March 20th or 21st in the Northern Hemisphere. That's when the sun is over the equator, and the day and nights are nearly equal in length.
What Happens in Spring?
Spring is a time of rapid growth and renewal in the natural world. Trees and plants that have been dormant all winter start returning to life, producing new leaves and flowers. Animals that hibernated or migrated during the winter start to return, and birds start to build nests and lay eggs. Spring is also a time of unsure weather, with rain showers, thunderstorms, and even snowstorms possible in some areas.
What Can You Plant?
A great time to start planting is in the Spring as long as the soil has warmed up enough to support new growth. Some plants that do well in Spring include peas, spinach, lettuce, and other cool-season crops. You can also plant tulips and daffodils for a burst of color in the early Spring. One can also plant trees and shrubs in the Spring.

Spring is a time to enjoy the beauty of nature. Whether you're planting a garden, taking a walk in the park, or simply enjoying the warmer weather, there's something for everyone in this season of renewal and growth.
