Flower Power

As soon as you start to see daffodils and crocuses pushing up through the ground, it’s a sure sign that spring is on the way (even if there’s still frost on the ground). Those are just the flowers leading the pack, there are also tulips, daisies and cherry blossoms if you live in a city with cherry trees.

Time and Temperature

The Spring Equinox (usually marked on calendars) is a pretty easy way to figure out when it’s spring. Remember the old memory trick for time change “Spring Forward, Fall Back”? Well the clocks go forward one hour as we go into spring, adding an extra hour of daylight to this beautiful season, and naturally the temperature goes up as well!

Animal Alert!

Flowers aren’t the only ones that come out of hiding during spring, after the cold of winter you’ll notice more animals out enjoying the warmer weather and greener environment, everything from birds and butterflies to deer and insects start making their appearance.

Rain and Shine

After the long dark winter, the first thing you notice about spring is the sunshine, although it’s the rain that truly brings out the beauty in this season, nourishing the grass and flowers. And of course, wherever there’s sunshine you’re bound to see more smiles!

But you could have done something like after talking about heading back to the woods you could have done ,a burst of light blinding me then a bang! My side hits the front of the vehicle, suddenly I'm on my side on the rocky ground, I look at the stars, then they all go out. Or maybe not. :/ Well yeah, But I was trying to make it like an animal was thinking it. So I didn't wanna use car, vehicle or anything like that.
