Spring may have sprung on the meteorological calendar, but you are possibly wondering why we are still feeling a little chilly…
The March equinox signals the beginning of spring in the Northern Hemisphere, and autumn in the Southern Hemisphere. It marks that special moment when the sun crosses the celestial equator going from south to north.
We’ve all noticed the earlier dawns and later sunsets since the clocks went forward. Plants are confused as the weather changes from warm (ish) to cold and back. However, winds will soon start to soften, whilst birds and butterflies will continue to migrate back northward, along with the path of the sun. We hope the longer days bring warmer weather so we can leave our winter coats at home. Trees will be budding, and plants will begin a new cycle of growth.
While the astronomical seasons might give a better idea of when temperatures will get milder, the meteorological calendar is a lot easier to use when comparing one season to the last. This is due to the seasons being equal length each year compared to the wildly varying season lengths with the astronomical calendar. Fingers crossed that the weather catches up with the astronomical calendar soon! In any case, you won’t need to wait for warmer weather to enjoy the benefits of plants in your office.
Green Team Interiors wish you all a Happy Easter.
