  4. Is it Spring Yet?

    Spring has sprung! Or has it? This is largely dependent on whose definition of springtime you wish to adhere to, meteorological or astronomical. From a meteorological standpoint, today, the 1st of March, is the first day of spring. This is down to the fact that the seasons are split exactly between three months per season which means spring is March, April and May whilst summer is June, July and August. The seasons are organised in this way in accordance with the Gregorian calendar to make it simpler for meteorological observing and forecasting. Meanwhile, from an astronomical standpoint, we're...

In the case of February, the violet is said to represent faithfulness, wisdom and hope. Despite the popular rhyme, violets are not only blue but come in shades of purple and white as well. These are all things to bear in mind if you know...

Modern Mother's Day celebrations in the UK are actually descended from a historical 16th century practice of visiting one's mothering church once a year. This occasion, called Mothering Sunday, resulted in mothers being reunited with their children who would be young apprentices serving with masters. Nowadays...
