Finally we do have good spring weather! We’ve been waiting for a long time. But is was worth it! Every month we present some quotations, sayings or proverbs on page called Saying/Quotation of the month but this month we decided to add a short, seperate post connected with this beautiful season. Let’s look at some additional quotes found by Milena Ardent, Wiktoria Danisiewicz and Kasia Socha from 1f:
” You can cut all the flowers but you cannot keep Spring from coming.” – Pablo Neruda
“April hath put a spirit of youth in everything.” – William Shakespeare
“Spring in nature’s way of saying, “Let’s party!” -Robin Williams
“The first real day of spring is like the first time a boy holds your hand. A flood of skin-tingling warmth consumes you, and everything shines with a fresh, colorful glow, making you forget that anything as cold and harsh as winter ever existed.”
― Richelle E. Goodrich
“It’s spring fever. That is what the name of it is. And when you’ve got it, you want—oh, you don’t quite know what it is you do want, but it just fairly makes your heart ache, you want it so!” -Mark Twain
“That is one good thing about this world…there are always sure to be more springs.” – L.M.Montgomery, “Anne of Avonlea“
We can find some interesting information about spring on http://www.metoffice.gov.uk., when spring officially starts and how we define the seasons. It depends on whether we are referring to the astronomical or meteorological spring.
Astronomical seasons refer to the position of Earth’s orbit in relation to the sun taking into account equinoxes and solstices. Meteorological seasons are instead based on the annual temperature cycle and measure the meteorological state as well as coinciding with the calendar to determine a clear transition between the seasons.
Meteorological spring began on 01 March 2015 and runs until 31 May 2015.The meteorological seasons consists of splitting the seasons into four periods made up of three months each. The astronomical spring began on 20 March 2015 and runs until 21 June 2015.The astronomical calendar determines the seasons due to the 23.5 degree tilt of the Earth’s rotational axis in relation to its orbit around the sun.
