Hello and Welcome to September, the beginning of Spring,
or is it? Some say (especially America and Canada) that the season change on the solstices and equinox and thus Spring really begins with Equinox on the 23rd September.
No matter what we say; Mother Nature blithely goes about and does her own thing. What a Lady!
