Spring is a time for new life. Flowers begin to bloom盛开 after the long winter. Birds begin to build nests to lay their eggs in. In forests and fields many animals have babies this time of year. Days begin to get longer and the sun gets warmer. People begin to enjoy the outdoors and all the beautiful weather of spring.
