Spring

A time for new beginnings and new life. So much happens in the Spring - and there are so many different celebrations and things to dol

It's a time for clearing out and for planting new.

Why not send some Spring crafts in to add to the site for others to share or some ideas on what Spring means to you!!!

Only a few parts of the world experience the classic four seasons of Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter. Many parts of the world get only two or even one.

So why is that?

Well, it's all to do with the way our Earth spins on its axis.

Every day the Earth spins round once - but not in an upright regimental way. Because our Earth has been bombarded with collisions during its formation, the Earth is tilted and a 23.5 degree angle.

So, as the planet that's it's yearly trip around the Sun - different areas of the planet face the Sun more directly during their daylight hours and different times of the year.

The daily amount of light we get is affected by the tilt. Just think, without it the whole planet would have 12 hour days and 12 hour nights every day of the year.
