Wednesday Favorites – Seasons

It’s here, it’s here! My favorite time of year is finally here. I love autumn.

Even more so than summer, I love fall. It seems nature’s canvas explodes in vibrant colors and the trees become pretty clusters of orange, red, and yellow hues. This time of year is the only time I miss living in Michigan. I can do without the snow, sleet, and rain, but the fall in Michigan is spectacular—especially up North. When fall rolls around in Michigan, cider mills bustle with business as people, like me, enjoy lazy afternoons of people-watching while sipping fresh apple cider and munching on warm donuts. Yum! And then there are apple orchards, where people can pick their own fruit or buy bags by the pound. What else…oh yeah, and I love the petting zoos. Mind you, I’m afraid to actually touch darn near every animal—one of my many quirks—but, I do enjoy seeing them and watching other people pet them. One of these days, I’m going to have to work up the courage to pet a little goat on the snoot, or maybe an ear, something far away from chomping teeth. Hum…or maybe not.

But even still, fall is so scenic and vibrant with crisp air and leaves that crunch beneath your feet when you walk. Of course, raking the leaves is a major chore, but hey, that’s what kids are for. 🙂

Ahhhhh…it’s here. Enjoy the season while you can. We all know how quickly autumn gives way to winter, and we’ll be singing carols before you know it.

How about you? What’s your favorite time of year?

  1. I love autumn, too, but we went from summer to winter. We are below the normal temps. BBBRRRR!!

  2. What a bummer, Linda, that winter is coming so quickly. No fair! Autumn is much too pretty to miss out on experiecing.

  3. I guess I love them all and my favorite changes as I grow. Currently I love spring–new life, promise of warmth, no more snow, flowers bloom and I get to start my seedlings.

    Fall’s gorgeous when it’s dry.

  4. Sharon, your post made me remember picking apples in local orchards when our sons were small. Fun times! I love the colors of fall, the crackle of a fire on a cool evening, and kids jumping in piles of leaves.

  5. My favorite seasons are spring and fall. Spring comes out on top only because I don’t like the winter months. Dealing with snow and ice are no fun.

  6. Carol and Susan,
    Spring is definitely number two on my list of favorite seasons for the reasons you both mentioned. Isn’t God’s natural beauty amazing? He’s so creative with colors isn’t He? What a blessing to be able to see and enjoy His creation.

  7. Mary, I completely forgot to include the crackle of a fire on a cool evening. Of course, thinking of fires makes me think of homemade smores. Oh how I love homemade smores! Yum!

  8. I love spring. Here in eastern Kansas, there are tons of pink, red, and purple trees. So pretty.

    And you can’t beat the weather–blankets at night, jeans and short-sleeves during the day. That makes fall my second favorite. Cool weather and changing leaves.

  9. I do love Fall with football and pumpkin pie! Winter…not so much. We definitely get 4 seasons here, which is nice because as soon as you get weary of one, the next sets in.

  10. Kansas sounds absolutely gorgeous in the spring, Sally, especially the pretty colors you described. I’m a sucker for vibrant colors. 🙂

  11. I wish I could say the same, Georgiana. The only downside to where I live is the abscense of four seasons. The leaves change a little, but they don’t burst with color like in other parts of the country. But, then again, the winters are very mild–no snow, so I guess it’s a matter of trade-offs. Even still…I miss having four seasons.
