About Spring

Spring is a season that comes after winter and before summer. It usually starts in March and ends in June. Spring is a time when the weather becomes warmer, and the days become longer. The trees start to grow new leaves, and flowers begin to bloom.

One of the most exciting things about spring is that many animals come out of hibernation. Birds start building their nests, and bees start buzzing around the flowers. It’s a beautiful time of year, and there are many outdoor activities to enjoy.

People often celebrate spring by participating in traditions such as Easter or going on picnics. Spring is also a popular time for gardening because the warmer weather allows plants to grow. People plant flowers and vegetables to enjoy later in the year.
