Or so the rhyme goes. But Spring is most certainly on its way. According to the Met Office Spring officially begins this Friday. Astrological Spring that is. Meteorological Spring is already here, having started on March 1st. You can learn more about the difference between them here.
But there are other traditions that also define the beginning of Spring. In the USA, Spring begins on Groundhog Day (February 2nd) but only if the groundhog doesn't see his shadow. A sunny Groundhog Day means the groundhog will retreat back into his burrow and Winter will last another 6 weeks.
In Ireland, Spring traditionally starts even earlier, on February 1st, St Brigid's Day.
Of course, all this only applies in the Northern Hemisphere. On the other side of the world, Summer is turning into Autumn. Spring there begins in September!
