When:
April
Where:
Earth
First occurrence:
Before humans
With the ground defrosted and the sun getting warmer,
flowers bloom wildly announcing that life has returned
after a long cold winter!

Rumors go that sometimes the flowers are so abundant
that the boldest colors, red and pink, reflect even as
far as on the moon, making it blush.

Scientists say this is just a story,
but let’s check anyway just in case.
