Luke - Parable of natural signs

Luke 21:29 And he spake to them a parable; Behold the fig tree, and all the trees;
Luke 21:30 When they now shoot forth, ye see and know of your own selves that summer is now nigh at hand.

You know the natural signs of nature, why not the spiritual signs?

Mat 16:1 The Pharisees also with the Sadducees came, and tempting desired him that he would show them a sign from heaven.
Mat 16:2 He answered and said unto them, When it is evening, ye say, It will be fair weather: for the sky is red.
Mat 16:3 And in the morning, It will be foul weather to day: for the sky is red and lowering. O ye hypocrites, ye can discern the face of the sky; but can ye not discern the signs of the times?

Luke 21:31 So likewise ye, when ye see these things come to pass, know ye that the kingdom of God is nigh at hand.

Was he referring to the fig tree in Spiritual terms, as Israel? When Israel is again a nation then this generation shall see the end times? Many believe this. Or was it in reference to just seeing a fig tree, and all the trees, as written? As you know natural signs, we should know the Spiritual signs. Perhaps both views are correct?

Luke 21:32 Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass away, till all be fulfilled.

Which generation? The generation that sees all the signs written of earlier.
