Spring is in the air — at least in the southern hemisphere — and Google’s celebrating with the release of a new Doodle.

As fall weather hits the north, people in the southern hemisphere begin to unbutton their winter coats, store away the space heaters, and bring out the backyard barbecues to watch their gardens bloom.

“As the earth’s axis tilts closer to the sun and the days grow longer, plants, trees and buds come alive and “spring forth.” Here’s to fresh beginnings, new growth, and warmer days. Happy first day of spring!” Google wrote on their website.
