The best parts of each season

 This topic from Long and Short Reviews was easy in some parts and difficult in others.

My favourite season is winter. Why? Simple - Christmas. I love everything about it - dark nights lit with fairy lights, mulled wine at the German market, exchanging presents and having dinner with family. Who know, we might even get to do that this year.

Autumn, though, was a tough one. I don't like much about it - it's cold, damp and grey. However, it does contain one benefit - my birthday.


Which is always a bonus. (No, I don't know how they did that design either.)

For summer the best thing for me is holidays.


That one was taken on Capri, but it looks as though this year will be Scotland and the Lake District. No bad thing, the UK has some beautiful areas and the Lakes and Highlands are definitely included.

And spring? I couldn't find a photo of it, but a couple of years ago we went to Alnwick Castle to see the cherry blossoms, which come out around the end of April. If you're in the UK around that time I would recommend it - I love seeing the blossoms come out and they make a spectacular display at Alnwick, with swing seats to sit in under the trees.

So what are your favourite parts of each season?

  1. Now that's a cool looking drink. I'd be afraid to drink it for fear of messing it up.

  2. I hope your summer holidays are wonderful! And, wow, that drink is a pretty one. I’d be afraid of messing it up, too, but I hope it was delicious.

    1. It certainly was. I'm just hoping we get to go somewhere - anywhere would do.

  3. I'm with you on Christmas... I LOVE it!! One day I hope to get back to the UK (it's been 20+ years). Maybe this time I'll time it for April! My post is here: http://jhthomas.blogspot.com/2021/06/wednesday-weekly-blogging-best-parts-of.html
