Spring is in the air. Flowers are blooming, rainstorms are brewing and lots of pollen is in the air. It always feels like a new beginning when spring arrives. Spring arrives at different times around the earth. The Northern Hemisphere, including the US, starts spring between March 19th and March 21st. The Southern Hemisphere including Australia has Spring around September 22 and September 23rd. Days begin to get longer in spring because the earth tilts toward the sun.
