Fun Facts about Flowers
This year, the first day of spring is on March 19th. The flowers don't know that, but they can tell that the days are getting longer and the temperatures are rising. In the United States, we celebrate the first day of spring on the vernal equinox, the day when the Earth reaches the point in its orbit around the Sun when daylight and darkness are equal. After the vernal equinox, days in the Northern Hemisphere get increasingly longer, until the first day of summer.
In other parts of the world, the first day of spring is based on the lunar phases, instead. The people of Japan take their cue from their national flowers. They don't officially recognize the beginning of spring until the cherry blossoms bloom. Read More about It’s Time for Seasonal Spring Flowers »
