I live in the Midwest and enjoy four seasons. I use to especially love the autumn for it's color and cooler, temperate temperatures. I still enjoy the fall, but it has a sadness as the falling leaves signify the approach of winter. I have to say, as I age, I enjoy every moment of each season. The Winter, although harsh this year, has great beauty in it's snowy transformations and by the time it's winding down, I'm ready for the beauty of the warmer temps of Spring, along with the blooming flowers and trees. Summer has it's own special appeal, with heat, thunderstorms and vegetation in full bloom. The wild life is active and very enjoyable to observe. By the time Summer is heading back into Fall, I am ready to enjoy some cooler weather and once again, I feel lucky to begin another cycle.
