Being a life long resident of the northeastern United States, I must admit it is the springtime I look forward to and enjoy the most. As an avid gardener (both vegetables and flowers) the mere thought of planning and planting in the spring brings me an extra hop in my step. I have often said that when my hands are in the soil that is when I feel the closest to my "higher power." Of course, summer is almost a Siamese twin of spring for me, but it is the springtime when the roots of new life are planted.
I would have to say winter. I love the snow and have since I was a small child. The cold really doesn't bother me and the snow is just so beautiful. The more snow the merrier, as long as the power stays on. Praying for a white Christmas.
Late spring is my favorite time of year. When spring starts here it is wet and dreary, but as the season progresses, everything is so green, fresh and new, and the sunshine is so welcome. I love the feeling of coming summer and spring still has the cooler more comfortable temperatures.
For me, it's the fall. I love the coolness, the colors, the transition to winter which would be my next favorite season. Of course, I grew up in cold climes so no surprise there! There is just a sense to autumn that I love but can't put my finger on. Gorgeous picture, by the way!
The photo is winter in Orange County in Southern California. Lake Mission Viejo is in the foreground. The twin peaks of Saddleback Mountain (Saddleback and Modjeska) are in the background. I live a mile north of the lake.
You answered my question correctly. I was referring to weather, etc. I would have typed "Four Seasons" if I were referring to the hotel chain.The trees in my neighborhood are primarily evergreens. I don't get to see trees with leaves changing colors.
Fall! For one thing it means Halloween. It means the anticipation of snow just around the corner (yet halfway through winter I'm sick of snow, so, no, winter isn't my favorite!). It means burning leaves making the air smell amazing and cool air that isn't cold.
Which do you prefer, Summer or Winter?Summer; most definitely. Swimming and bikinis on the beach become an everyday possibility. It's the season that causes the forest to grow green and full of life. I LOVE summer!
