Many in Canada’s eastern provinces are beginning to see robins and snowdrops – the first signs of Spring; some westerners are already seeing daffodils. Of course seasonal signs are the result of many factors – including your place on the globe, your cultural and historical contexts as well as changing climates and migration patterns. Costa Rica is heading into rainy season come May. In Australia March is the beginning of Autumn.
Send us your photographs of your signs of seasonal change. And send along an explanatory description/story as well. All photos will be posted on the Transnational Ecologies pages and the best ones will be featured on the NiCHE main page.
