The Wonderful Seasons


Springtime is the most perfect time of the year because the flowers are starting to bloom, the trees are starting to get their leaves, and the birds are coming out even though they come out all year long. It is still my favorite time of the year. I enjoy sitting in the springtime sun watching the wildlife come and go. The stunning green leaves and beautiful flower's that bloom in the springtime fill the air with the calming effect. Although it does mess with the nasal passages it is still the time when you can get the spring cleaning done, have a yard sale without having a heat stroke, and enjoy the family time. Watching the insects and learning about the many things that come alive when springtime comes. The children enjoy learning about the variety of bugs that come out in the springtime and enjoy collecting the insects to feed the lizards and frogs that they have in their terrarium. The springtime is the best time of the year to find insects because you do not have to worry about tics, or other pests that would disturb your learning experience.

First Day Of Spring Starts With Flurries


That is a crazy start to Spring….

CBS Chicago

CHICAGO (CBS) — Thursday is the first day of spring, but Mother Nature must have hit the snooze alarm, as Chicagoans were greeted with snow flurries and freezing temperatures.

The mercury should climb to the mid- to upper-40s by late afternoon, but the first day of spring was starting with an all-too-familiar scene for Chicagoans sick of winter, as scattered snow showers popped up across the area.

Luckily, the snow wasn’t sticking around, as the ground has thawed with the recent milder weather, and the air temperature never got more than a degree or two below freezing overnight.

More springlike weather should warm things up on Friday, when temperatures should get above 60.

Then it will be right back to the low 40s on Saturday, and the low 30s on Sunday.

Next week will start only slightly better, with temperatures in the mid to upper 30s on Monday and Tuesday.

To start the day … Google doodle!


I love Spring. It is the most wonderful time of the year.

It Is What It Is

~~March 20, 2014~~ 

FIRST DAY OF SPRING

The happy news is already trending on Twitter, and Google is celebrating the occasion with an awesome animated Doodle showing a cartoon man watering seeds, which blossom into flowers that spell out GOOGLE.

~~What exactly is the Vernal Equinox?~~

TIME writer Harry Swartout explains:

Twice a year, the earth’s axis is angled such that the world gets an equal amount of daylight and night. As the axis tilts further, the northern hemisphere receives more direct sunlight, leading to spring and summer’s warmer temperatures. The Equinox helps mark important celebrations around the world like Nowruz, the Persian New Year, Easter, and Passover.

It also means you can officially wear white–but only until Labor Day.

So though it’s technically the first day of Spring, it’s looking pretty cold out there across much of the country. The Weather Channel’s temperature map is basically…

The springtime is the best time of the year to find insects because you do not have to worry about tics, or other pests that would disturb your learning experience. Summer of course, is the hottest season of the year and you do not feel like doing much outside because of the hot weather. Of course, you can find some wonderful insects and flowers blooming all around the yard. Growing a garden is the best time of all of these seasons because you will have fresh produce and lots of other good things to eat. This spring I have planted lilies, carnations, and many other flower’s in the front yard. In the side yard I have planted tomatoes, peppers, and cucumbers and they are looking wonderful right now.
