Photographer's Note

Maybe you'll find this photo stupid..
I took it just a few hours ago, in my grandmother's yard. We got together for a celebration, and the warm sun combined with a touch of wind, the blossomed trees, the happy crowd and.... this cock-a-doodle-doo made me feel it's really spring!


Spring is one of the four seasons of temperate zones, the transition from winter into summer. Spring is counted as the whole months of March, April, and May in the Northern Hemisphere and September, October, and November in the Southern Hemisphere. In all technicality, Spring begins on the Vernal Equinox (March 20th or 21st in the Northern Hemisphere and September 22 or 23 in the Southern) and lasts till Summer Solstice (June 21st or 22nd in the Northern Hemisphere and December 21st or December 22nd in the Southern).

As in summer, the axis of the Earth is tilted toward the Sun, and the length of daylight hours rapidly increases the higher in latitude you are. The hemisphere begins to warm significantly, causing new plant growth to spring forth, giving the season its name. Snow begins to melt, and rivers and streams swell with runoff and Spring rains. Most flowering plants bloom this time of year, in a long succession beginning even when snow is still on the ground, and continuing into early summer (wikipedia.org).


Can you feel it too?
Have a good weekend!
