Spring is one of the four seasons. It is the transition period between winter and summer. The indicators of the start of this season are the blooming of different plants and flowers, activities of animals, and the change in weather. In spring, the axis of the Earth is increasing its tilt toward the Sun and the length of daylight rapidly increases for the relevant hemisphere. The hemisphere begins to warm significantly causing new plant growth to "spring forth," giving the season its name. Spring has become known as being a time of growth and renewal, or new life being born.
