Seasons of Love

As everyone knows, there are four seasons: fall, winter, spring and summer. My favorite season is fall, but there are things that I like about all of the seasons. That's what today's A to Z Challenge post is all about.

Fall. I like when it starts to get cold, but not quite freezing yet. Basically, I love to wear hoodies and sweatpants - that might be a little strange, but that's me. And fall is also the perfect time to go apple picking and all that fun stuff.
Winter. I'm the person who actually likes snow, but not a whole lot of it. Each winter, I generally ask for one big snowstorm and then I'm done with it. I do like snow on the trees and such because it look so beautiful and picturesque. What I don't like about winter is ice and when snow starts to get dirty/messy.
Isn't that just beautiful?
This is one of my favorite pictures that I took from Jackson Hole, Wyoming. My dad and I went on vacation there to see his sister and nieces (my aunt and cousins), as well as Yellowstone National Park, in July 2011. This is from Grand Teton National Park and there was still snow on the mountains. Needless to say, they get a lot of snow.
Spring. I like the nicer temperatures before it starts getting too hot. And I also like when the leaves change colors - in my neighborhood, we get these beautiful white and pink trees in the spring. Spring also means allergy season, which I don't like, as I like all the nice flowers, but really can't stand to be around them.
       Tulips are one of my favorite flowers. And the pink leaves on the trees is magnificent.
Summer. I actually don't care for summer that much. I don't tolerate the heat very well and that's all there is to it. What I do like about summer is going down the shore, of course, or the beach to most of you. Vacation is definitely a plus.
This was taken from my favorite spot in Wildwood, NJ.
Happy Reading and Keep on Writing!


  1. Hi Megan - the seasons .. they all offer much - but I am so glad Spring is here .. and our summer is usually hot, but not too hot! I'm not that keen on winter .. but the autumn colours, and harvests around .. love the photos and I bet the holiday you had with your Dad was special ... take care and enjoy the tulips while they're still around .. cheers Hilary

    1. Hi Hilary. The seasons do offer much. Summer where I am can get pretty hot, plus high humidity makes it worse. I'm most likely doing the challenge again next year and I kind of know what my theme will be and I'll be doing one on my Wyoming/Yellowstone trip. ~Meg

  2. as much as i HATE snow, there's something magical about the changing seasons that i missed when I lived in Texas. Now that I'm back in Yankee country, i can appreciate the changes again. happy earth day.

    1. I have a love-hate relationship with snow, but I appreciate its beauty. I love when the seasons change because there is some good in each one. I had planned this one out, not knowing that today was Earth Day, so I like how it worked out that way. Happy Earth Day to you as well ~Meg

  3. Love the photos! Beautiful.

    Visiting from A to Z.

    1. Thanks Yvonne! It was nice doing this post. ~Meg
