Spring has sprung in Minnesota.

Why it matters: May is one of Minnesota's best months of the year. It's science!

The big blooms: We asked Axios Twin Cities readers to submit photos that capture the beauty of the season. You didn't disappoint.

  • Here's a look at some of the spectacular shots that landed in our inboxes:
