October Blog Topic: favourite season? (and why?)


Spring, Summer, Winter, and Fall.

I love all the seasons. It's hard to choose a favorite. I don't know if I can pick.
But if I have to choose, I love the spring. I love seeing the flowers in bloom. In Florida flowers bloom almost all year though...so I love seeing them throughout the year. 


The summers in Florida are nice too. 
They are very hot, but you can swim in the ocean which is wonderful! 
The water here is almost always crystal clear and you can see your feet and fish swimming by. I have seen sting rays swimming along the waters edge before which was such an amazing site to see.


Most of you know that I spent 11 years in Southwest Colorado. The seasons are quite different there than here in Florida. 
In Colorado I loved the summers. The weather was perfect and I could go on hikes and look for the beautiful wildflowers. 
The flowers were amazing in the summer. 
But the summer was short and before I knew it...it was be fall and then winter again. 
In the fall the aspen would change to their beautiful golden colors and they would jingle in the wind. It was a wonderful site to see and hear! As soon as fall began, winter would be quickly around the corner and it would start snowing.

Winter in Colorado was magical. 
I can remember the amazing quiet of hearing the snow fall. 
The calm of the winter was comforting. I would love to sit by the window drinking my hot chocolate and watching the big snowflakes slowly fall. 
To hear the snow fall is magical.

 In Florida I love the fall and winter also. I love spending time at the beach and searching for small treasures in the sand. The beaches are not too crowded...sometimes you get to explore them by yourself and enjoy a quiet windy day listening to the waves crash in. 


See I told you I couldn't pick a favorite! I love them all for different reasons.
