Changing calender list to 24 solar terms

I made calender lists for myself and added species when I post observations.
But I felt four weeks(one month) is too long to flowers and insects, so I'm making lists of every two weeks. :)
We have 24 solar terms and it's very fit to my calender.
I mean, my list "立春, 雨水, 啓蟄, 春分..." is a calender, 24 solar terms. :)
