Spring has hatched

Eastern Asian cultures mark the progress of seasons at shorter intervals, with no fewer than 24 solar terms. The beginning of the "start of Autumn" term for Northern Hemisphere will be on 8th August, which will be the beginning of the "start of Spring" term for the Southern Hemisphere.
Either way the baby Spring seems under way. Though Plants and the weather are still to catch up, days are longer. Birds are active. And the Sun is moving.
