No matter where you live, there is a rhythm to the seasons. Some places the change is more dramatic than others, of course! This week on the Blog Hop, A.S. Fenichel says:
Fall is here in the US and Canada! It’s my favorite season. What do you love about the autumn or do you have another favorite season?
There is something special about fall. For one, it’s the only season to have two names! Autumn is more poetic, don’t you think?
Here in Northern BC we don’t have quite the colourful glory of the forests in eastern Canada, but that doesn’t mean it is drab and gray. This year has been perfect for the leaves – just cold enough to turn, but not so cold they freeze. Even my ivy, which I showed a few weeks ago, is still going strong and is now a beautiful red.
You might think living in a colder climate would mean spring is my favourite season, but it isn’t. “The melt” as I non-affectionately call it, can be very grim and dirty. By the middle of May things are looking up, but March and April are months simply to be endured. On the other side of summer, autumn often brings bright blue skies and crisp temperatures that lure me outside. Just this past weekend we spent several hours sitting around a backyard campfire with family and it was wonderful. Maybe it is the knowledge that winter is coming that makes me appreciate the days even more.
