Happy autumn! It’s Week #38 of the #MFRWauthor 52-Week Blog Challenge (are you hooked yet?). In honor of the fact that autumn starts today, the topic we’re discussing is the best part(s) of each season.
First, I’m not sure I actually have a favorite season (not that you asked. Geez, we’re off-topic already…). I’m less partial to the winter season, though, because everything is withered and lifeless, plus it’s cold. I was born and raised in South Florida, so even though I lived in Colorado and braved the winter seasons for a long time, I’m still partial to the warmer weather you get in the summer months.
Now that we got that out of the way, here are the best parts of each season, in my (very) humble opinion:
Autumn is so pretty here in Georgia! The best part of autumn has got to be the fall color. The crisp snap to the air after the often unrelenting heat of the summer months doesn’t hurt either. For me, though, the biggest drawback to the fall season is that it leads to the winter season.
And, when we’re talking about the winter season, the best part is the holidays. I’m not a cold weather person, so I focus on the holidays.
I love everything about Christmas…except putting up and taking down the decorations. If I ever win the lottery, I swear I’m going to pay someone to do it for me!
On the other hand, the spring season in Georgia is breathtaking! There is a point when the azaleas are in full color, and the daffodils and tulips are blooming, and the dogwood trees are blossoming, and the forsythia covers the trees in huge purple vines, and…well, let’s just say that it’s not safe for me to drive because my head is swiveling around on my neck like Reagan’s from The Exorcist. Unlike her, though, my goal to see all the beauty of the world as it awakens and comes back to life.
Then, summer begins.
You’d think I would detest being in the Deep South in summer, but I don’t. I actually don’t mind the hot weather, however I have been known to go into reverse hibernation and hug my air conditioner when the heat index rises to 100 plus. As it tends to do here. For months on end.
Yup, that’s when I start looking forward to autumn again.
Which do you consider to be the best part of each season? Leave your comments below. Thanks for stopping by – have an awesome autumn!
