Spring (Season)

The definition of 'Spring (season)' (according to Wikipedia) :

Meteorologists generally define four seasons in many climatic areas: spring, summer, autumn (or fall) and winter. These are demarcated by the values of their average temperatures on a monthly basis, with each season lasting three months. The three warmest months are by definition summer, the three coldest months are winter, and the intervening gaps are spring and autumn.


In spring, the axis of the Earth is increasing its tilt toward the Sun and the length of daylight rapidly increases for the relevant hemisphere. The hemisphere begins to warm significantly causing new plant growth to "spring forth," giving the season its name. Snow, if a normal part of winter, begins to melt, and streams swell with runoff. Frosts, if a normal part of winter, become less severe. In climates that have no snow and rare frosts, the air and ground temperature increases more rapidly. Many flowering plants bloom this time of year, in a long succession sometimes beginning even if snow is still on the ground, continuing into early summer.

Hoi Martin,

Wat hebben jullie toch prachtige bloemen in jullie winkel. Ik ga meestal op zaterdagochtend naar de bloemenmarkt in het centrum van Rotterdam om inkopen te doen. De roze ranonkels heb ik daar nog niet gezien.

Een gezellige avond.
