Spring is one of my favorite seasons, I was born during Spring, and I love the weather, although it is more like Summer than Spring down here in the south. In Spring the days become longer because the axis of the Earth is starting to tilt towards the Sun. Because of this, the Earth starts to warm, allowing plants to grow.
