Is there a Spring God/Goddess?

Are there interesting stories?

I do not know about any Spring gods or Goddesses, but since you like stuff like that, I found a list of nature deities if that counts or suits you.

As per my Google search result I found "Persephone" to be the spring Goddess. In case you may like to share with your friends : "Persephone"

Have a good day
