    What's your favourite season? 23rd Oct 16 at 6:39 PM
    I was thinking earlier how pretty autumn is, especially when it's sunny like today. I love how gold the sun is when it's low in the sky and it shines through the autumn leaves.

    I love living in a country with proper seasons, it's feels like there's always something different to look at. I think spring is my favourite, watching everything wake up after winter. The first warm sunny day always cheers me up.

    Winter is my least favourite because I hate going to work and coming home in the dark and I don't like being cold, but even that has its plus points with all the Christmas markets and the Christmas food.

    Autumn for me - am I too old to say how much I love tramping through the crisp, golden leaves?

    Early to mid spring and early summer for me (May-July)

    I love seeing the flowers come out and suddenly noticing that the trees all have loads of leaves. The birds seem to sing all day long and the very air is full of promise. Long days, mild nights, and the prospect of getting rid of the coats, jumpers and cardigans.

    I always find late summer/early autumn really sad. The flowers and trees are starting to look droopy and faded, the shops are getting their winter clothes on the racks and worse of all....the Christmas cards/chocs/decorations start to make an appearance!

    I know everyone raves about autumn walks and bright winter days and I agree that they are indeed lovely. But here in the South-East, the autumn, winter and early spring just seem to blend into one long grey, damp and dreary season.

    Autumn for me. I love all the colours in the trees and the nip in the air when I take my dog for his early morning walk.
    Spring is my second favourite. See the new buds appearing on the trees and the spring flowers popping out of the ground.

    To add to my other thought: I do like autumn days like today. It's sunny, the leaves look gorgeous, whether still on the tress or lying on the ground.

    There's still a good cover, as we haven't had much wind here.

    What I hate are these damp days, when I look out of the kitchen window to heavy mist over the town and grey clouds sit still. These harbingers of winter are horrible.

    Season 2.

    The characters had bedded themselves in by that stage, and the script writers hadn't run out of interesting ideas.

    Summer. It's warmer and my workload is lighter than the rest of the year.

    I like all seasons, each one has its own characteristics. Crisp days in winter, lovely for walking, vivid greens of new vegetation in spring, holidays in summer and colours of autumn.

    Autumn for me. It's the colours, the scents, the quality of the sunlight and being able to wear jumpers and hats without needing a heavy coat.

    Next best is Spring, from the first warmth of sun on your face after winter, to the fresh green shoots and delicately scented wildflowers, primroses, cowbells, bluebells, wood anemones, catkins, birdsong and new bees out searching for food to support the colony.

    Winter is icky because it's damp and foggy and cold and wet and dark. The only consolations are open fires in ancient pubs, sloe gin and the brief moments at sunrise where it's just me and the wild birds.

    But summer. Ugh. Summer. Sweaty, burning ball of pain in the sky. It's not worth experiencing unless you're on the moors and as far away from other people as possible. Then it's nice to listen to insects, birds and the breeze. And if you find a pool where Banded Demoiselles are in full flight, it's the most magical place you could imagine. Once that's finished (usually within about twenty minutes on the moors), you can keep summer.
    I could dream to wide extremes, I could do or die: I could yawn and be withdrawn and watch the world go by.

    Yup you are officially Rock n Roll

    I am loving the fact Spring is starting to show it's face. Lots of blossom in the garden and saw the first bee in the garden today.

    It's looking very peculiar as most of the trees haven't started to bud leaves yet and then there's some that are in full blossom
    if you lend someone 20 and never see that person again, it was probably worth it
