Spring Flowers

Fun Spring Flower Facts This year, the first day of spring and the vernal equinox fall on March 19th. The flowers don’t know what day of the year it is, though. They can, however, since the days growing longer and the temperatures getting warmer, and these changes are what prompts them to start to grow and blossom. 

 In the United States, we recognize the first day of spring as the vernal equinox. People in other parts of the world, however, use the lunar calendar to determine when the seasons change. In Japan, people take their cue from the flowers themselves. 

Japan doesn’t officially recognize the beginning of spring until the cherry blossoms, their national flower, bloom.
