Signs of Spring

The Northern Hemisphere is once more beginning its lean towards the Sun, with the spring equinox taking place last Friday, March 20th. People all over are welcoming the spring sunshine and new growth in many ways - from Stonehenge and Mayan pyramids to Dutch meadows and Texan beaches. Here is a collection that shows some of the signs of spring as we shake off the last bits of winter. (29 photos total)

beautiful. I used to see a lot of snowdrop flowers and crocuses in Romania during spring. They don't grow in California so I miss them.

Alan, I've been a reader/viewer since the beginning, and haven't commented so far., but this photo set compels me to. This might be my absolute favorite post so far; there are just so many beautiful and joyous shots, and the international flavor is terrific as usual. Great stuff; keep it up!

Beautiful! My faves were the daffodils in London, the crocuses in Germany and the dancing cows in the Netherlands.

The Idaho "snow geese" (#24) are actually wild swans (either Trumpeter or Tundra Swans). Note the long necks and the all-white wings.

THIS POEM FITS YOUR WONDERFUL PICTURES PERFECTLY! AH, SPRING!

A Prayer in Spring
Robert Frost (1915)

Oh, give us pleasure in the flowers to-day;
And give us not to think so far away
As the uncertain harvest; keep us here
All simply in the springing of the year.

Oh, give us pleasure in the orchard white,
Like nothing else by day, like ghosts by night;
And make us happy in the happy bees,
The swarm dilating round the perfect trees.

And make us happy in the darting bird
That suddenly above the bees is heard,
The meteor that thrusts in with needle bill,
And off a blossom in mid air stands still.

For this is love and nothing else is love,
The which it is reserved for God above
To sanctify to what far ends He will,
But which it only needs that we fulfil

.

This is so unfair... everywhere else spring is already looking good but here in Finland, it's still very very much winter... (today snowed last time).

#24 is actually a flock of swans. Most likely Tundra Swans

Posted by Brad March 23, 09 02:58 PM
42.

#24 does not show Snow Geese -- those are Tundra Swans (formerly known as Whistling Swans). The swan and goose migration routes are the same, but Snow Geese have black primary wing feathers, pale bills, and shorter necks; Tundra Swans are pure white, with black bills and very long necks..

Oh My God, I had never seen so many beautiful photos of celebrations of Spring all over the world. I am from Iran where first day of spring has been celebrated for thousands of years as the beginning of the New year. I always thought that first day of spring is definetly a great choice for celebration of new beginnings since all nature renews itself and is at its most beautiful state. what a great collection of pictures you have shown us . Thanks. I will never forget this and hope to be able to add to it and transfer the great feelings I get of being in tune with nature during these wonderful days of spring.

#29 is very close to where I live...as you can see, it mostly looks and feels like a pathetically snowless winter. But there were robins all over my backyard today, so things seem to be looking up. I love seeing these pictures, especially the ones involving rituals around the world. I love seeing nature and the new beginnings of life celebrated like that.

Beautiful and educative, a nice combination. I must dig around this blog more.

We still have snow and ice here but the increased sunshine - especially when enhanced by white snow - is one of the first signs of spring in itself. The winter-coated squirrel up a tree reminds me more of winter than spring though. :)

writer #27 and others: I wonder if one day, one post will make everybody happy. Each time, some tight ass complains about something, this time about a few girls on the beach. One picture only out of 29! Is that too much? maybe you wanted a warning with "questionable contents" as well? Get a life, get some sense of humor! This is part of the world, sorry if you hate life. Do you hear people complaining because that beautiful woman on #19 is dressed up? No, and it doesn't spoil the pleasure to look at the picture.

Frühling

Frühling läßt sein blaues Band
Wieder flattern durch die Lüfte
Süße, wohlbekannte Düfte
Streifen ahnungsvoll das Land
Veilchen träumen schon,
Wollen balde kommen
Horch, von fern ein leiser Harfenton!
Frühling, ja du bist's!
Dich hab ich vernommen!

FYI, the woman and girl in #23 are ethnically Kyrgyz, not Kazakh. You can tell by the design of the wall hangings behind them. Kazakh and Kyrgyz designs look quite different from each other and those are definitely Kyrgyz.

Happy Spring to everyone!
Only one comments for #23 Nawruz is not only Kurdish or Iranian holyday.
Spring equinox celebrated in turkik speaking countries as well.
It celebrates in Azerbaijan, Turkkmenistan, Kazakhstan, Kirgiztsan and also
in Tatarstan and Bashkortostan (two authonomous regions of Russia where were Turkik speaking people live). We Turks call Novruz Ergenokon or Erken gun
(same meaning as in Persion Naw Ruz means new day in Turkish Erken Gun means new day too).

Posted by Nazim March 25, 09 06:41 PM
129.

Happy Spring again!
One more comment for #23. It's better to call Nawruz not as Persian or Iranian New Year, but Central Asian New Year. Ergenokon celebrated trough all turkik speaking people in Central Asia during Spring Equinox and even in turkik speaking authonomous regions of Russia (Tatarstan and Bashkortostan). As for Turkey is celebrated there by Kurds and Turks who lives in Iqdir, Erzurum, Kars, regions close to Caucasus border. During the Ottoman times all Turks celebrate it, but not now.

Great photos. and i love the idea of knowing the world goes on around all the violence and suicide. Id love to have photos from my day of birth each year. and as an opinion i believe these photos are important to let the politicians know that ppl of other countries are not just celebrating the kill but other things as well an they are human as well. we are all gods creatures. i am related to ppl in iraq by gd and i live in usa new york state. thank you for the awakening.

Although Newroz is celebrated by many people in Asia, we must aknowledge the fact that Newroz is most deeply celebrated by the Kurds in Kurdistan and abroad, more than any other population in the world.

I think the birds in picture #24 are Swans, and not Snow Geese. Snow Geese have black wing tips, and their neck is not as long.

Great .I congratulate the talented photographers for these nostalgic shots.Please take snaps from Kerala, my native . It too has charismatic locations to shoot.

I love the way Iranian calendar is designed. Each year is nicely aligned with seasons i.e. starts with spring and ends in winter. A complete cycle of seasons. Its art rather than astronomy.

Oh for Pete's sake all you silly people criticizing #13! It's SPRING Break! Many college student spend months in winter waiting to do this exact thing to celebrate the change in weather. Stop being so prudish!

Brian comment 71, the only thing that would potentially indicate excess in that picture are the three water or beers they're holding. Nothing else really points to that conclusion beyond your stereotypes of young women in bikinis.

@ comment 167, not sure it's prudishness necessarily re picture 13, it's perhaps that by comparison with other spring celebrations the North American 'hey, look we're wearing bikinis and drinking beer' seems a bit trivial... But then I'm in Europe, I've been wearing bikinis and drinking beer since I was 14, and the same goes for most of my mates. Cheers!

The beautiful, and meaningful pictures celebrate life, and hope. They bring out love and appreciation from within towards all mankind and nature. If only mankind would pause to enjoy the flowers, and gather some to pass on. Greetings from the Philippines.

Norooz is an ancient Persian and Iranian celebration for the begining of the new year and the begining of the spring season.
The photos were amazing. It would be much better if there was a photo from the spring in Iran which is considered the homeland of Norooz.

to the coment no. 128 by nazim ...
but it is also a fact that in turkey newroz is not celebrated since the foundation of the turkish republic and its not long ago that celebrating newroz for the kurds which are living in the turkish occupied part of kurdistan is not allowed and many kurds (also children) are killed still to the last celebration in 2009 by the turkish armed forced and polices ...
