My favorite season

Spring is my favorite season of the year. I love the weather, the flowers, the bright yellow-green of new leaves, the early sunrise and late sunsets. Winter’s cold grip is gone, Summer’s hot breath is yet to come, and Mother Nature is dressed to celebrate.

What’s your favorite season?

    I don’t know if I really have a favorite season, but I do love spring. It smells incredible right now. Oh wait, that’s my wife.

      Ha, Rich. I guess the fact that your wife smells great is a good thing. 😉 I’m a big fan of fall for almost all of the same reasons, except that I know the gray and cold are coming, so it’s harder to get excited about it. Have a great day!

    Spring! I love the anticipation of summer by enjoying
    green grass, bulbs blooming, and the variety of green
    everywhere!

    Well, I hate to be a dud, Gwen, but for some reason Spring sends me into depression. I’m not exactly sure why, but perhaps it’s because it reminds me that soon Summer will begin scorching what is, usually, not such a bad place to live. How hot, you ask? Try 115 degrees. Yeah, that’s right. I said 115 degrees. You can literally feel yourself melting. I suppose I have inverse SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder). Most normal people get depressed in the Fall, when they can feel the oncoming Winter cold approaching. Me? Just the opposite, I get happy. I never did claim to be normal, though 🙂

    Glad you’re enjoying the time of the year, Gwen. Think of me in the dead of summer 🙂

      Oh no, Dave, I totally understand. I’m a mild weather kind of gal. And I can relate to that heat. I spent much of my youth in Tucson where they have often have more than 100 consecutive days over 100 degrees. Oven-hot heat (yes dry, but awful nonetheless) that sucks the air from your lungs the instant you step outside. It usually breaks 100 degrees before the end of May. I have no desire to move back. 😉

      I loved living in coastal California because it was like spring there nearly all year round. No impending summer heat. Stay cool!

    I don’t have a favorite. I enjoy all the seasons. I don’t know if it’s because of all the weird weather we’ve had over the last couple of months, but all the flowering trees around here smell just fantastic this year. Walking my dog the last couple of days has been a real treat for the nose as I pass all the lilacs and crab apple trees. Love it!

      Maura: There’s always something to enjoy in each season, for sure. Like you, though, I’m actually enjoying walking the dog for a change. 😉
