Spring Season of Renewal

Popular Spring blooms include tulips, hyacinths, daffodils, iris, daisies, and lilies.
Often though, the first bloom to be seen is a dandelion. Dandelions first came from Asia, and now call the entire world home. They can be used both as a food and a medicine, and the seeds provide an important food to many small birds.
Common animals and insects associated with spring are rabbits, eagles, frogs, hummingbirds, robins, deer, foxes, bears, bees, butterflies and ladybugs.
Baby birds learn to sing. Baby birds are born with the ability to sing, but they must learn the specific songs of their species. They are thought to acquire these songs between 10 to 60 days of age and begin to sing them the next spring when they have matured at about 300 days old.
Spring fever is real! Commonly occurring when a sudden warm spell follows a long cold period. When the temperature rises, there’s a dilation or expansion of the blood vessels so that blood can be carried to the body surface where heat can be lost quickly. Some people experience an energetic feeling to this reaction.
Spring cleaning often accompanies spring fever. And with the warmer weather windows and doors can be open, which allows ventilation for dusting and the fumes of cleaning products. It has been suggested that spring cleaning dates back to the Persian New Year where they practice “Khoneh Tekouni” which means “shaking the house.” Another possibility of the origin can be traced to the ancient Jewish practice of cleansing the home in anticipation of Passover.
