Spring signs about nature
Animal behavior also helps to identify signs of spring and anticipate imminent weather changes:

To meet a white hare in March means snow will soon fall, and many mice indicate a poor harvest of the year.
Folk omens by month
For a more detailed interpretation of the spring, it is important to pay attention to the month of the season. In March, to determine the future harvest and weather conditions, you need to closely monitor the changes in the weather:
- Summer will be cold and short when the snow melts on the south side of the anthill.
- A rainy month means a bad harvest.
- Regular fogs lead to frequent precipitation.
- Heavy snow falling in a March blizzard melts quickly – towards a wet and cold summer.
- Rare frosts – for a good harvest.
- Frequent fogs and constant rains are a sure sign of bad weather in summer.
- Icicles in March – by a long spring.
- A smooth surface of snow – to a weak harvest, rough – to a rich one.
In the first thunder of March, the wind direction will help to determine the weather for the spring:
- northern – lingering and cold;
- east – warm and without precipitation;
- southern – hot and long.
If the first days of April are crowned with rainy weather, expect a large number of mushrooms, and a thunderstorm these days portends a wonderful harvest of nuts. According to well-known signs, the absence of swallows indicates a cold and prolonged spring, and birches, which give a lot of sap, are a sign of showers in the summer. A widespread superstition in April is that there will be a large flood once a crow has built its nest high in a tree.
It is easy to determine the yield of the year by May weather:
- Frequent cold weather – to the harvest of bread.
- Regular rains mean a rich harvest.
- Foggy, cool month – to dry June and the death of the harvest.
- May hail – to frequent precipitation in summer and a poor harvest.
If in May you see a lot of beetles, expect a drought, and a blossoming birch indicates that bird cherry and lilacs will bloom within a week.
