Hi,
Here are some words from the novel Lady Chatterley's Lover(page 440-441, chapter 19) by DH Lawrence (planetebook,here):
(background: Mellors had got a job on a farm. And he thought he would have to make his own living.And he thought again…)

So they would have to wait till spring was in, till the baby was born, till the early summer came round again.

I take spring was in to be spring fell/came, but is it common usage of be in please?
Thank you in advance
