Springtime



20 March

Spring is one of the four temperate seasons of the year. Many artists addressed this motif, as "spring" and "springtime" refer to the idea of rebirth, renewal and regrowth. At the spring equinox, which commonly falls on 20 March, days are close to 12 hours long, their length increasing as the season progresses.
