My favorite season is autumn. I love the colors of fall--the oranges, yellows, reds, and even browns. I love waking up on a crisp morning and how it warms up during the day and when the nights are clear and bright and just chilly enough for a jacket. I love the start of school, the smell of new school supplies and clothes, the excitement for another year of learning that's in the air. I love the anxious feeling for the coming holidays--Halloween, then Thanksgiving and the coming of Christmas. I love apple season and all the baking that goes with it--apple pies, apple streudels, applesauce. Just thinking about the smell of cinnamon and apples makes me hungry for autumn.
What is your favorite season? Do like autumn, like me, but for different reasons? Do like winter, all snuggled in a warm home with a fire glowing while the gray sky sends little snow flurries fluttering down? Or spring, as the earth warms itself up from the cold winter and new life is everywhere? What about summer, those carefree days of playing in the warm sunshine under bright blue skies dotted with white, puffy clouds?
Which one do you prefer?
