The Four Seasons Index

       The four periods into which the year is divided by the ever-changing position of the earth in relation to the sun. As the earth revolves about the sun in nearly circular obit, its axis at all times points toward the Pole Star and is inclined to the plane of its orbit 23 1/2 degrees. Therefore different parts of its surface are at different times of the year exposed to the vertical rays of the sun. Astronomically speaking, in the northern hemisphere spring extends from March 21, the time of the vernal equinox, to the summer solstice, June 21; summer from June 21 to September 21, the time of the autumnal equinox; autumn to December 21, and winter from that date to the beginning of spring. In the southern hemisphere the seasons are reversed, and spring begins September 21. In the torrid zone the changes in the seasons are not marked by differences in temperature, but by wet and dry periods.
       Artifacts included here come from several of my blogs featuring the holidays and/or weather related content.

Woven tree art project may be used to incorporate any
season: Spring, Summer, Fall or Winter, depending
on the landscape and colors used in the selection of
yarns as well.
