When the axis of the Earth increases its tilt relative to the Sun, and the daylight hours lengthen we know that Spring has now arrived! We call the first day of Spring the vernal equinox and on this day there are 12 hours of daylight and 12 hours of night. Spring is one four seasons experienced in Europe and is the transition from winter into summer. Spring begins in March and continues through April and May with June being the beginning of summer. With the spring days warming, icy mornings disappear and, in the north of Europe, the snow begins to melt. As the ground temperature rises and the air warms, many trees, plants and bulbs begin to grow with people welcoming the first blooming of snowdrops, daffodils and of cherry blossom. Animals also sense the change into spring as they shed their winter coats in preparation for the warmer weather and birds begin to lay eggs. The spring weather can often be unstable with warm days and days of heavy rain that can often lead to severe flooding. This flooding can be exacerbated by snowmelt in the mountainous regions of Europe.
