50 things...No. 2

"Winter is an etching...spring is a watercolor...summer an oil painting and autumn a mosaic of them all" ~S. Horowitz

"Spring passes and one remembers one's innocence. Summer passes and one remembers one's exuberance. Autumn passes and one remembers one's reverence. Winter passes and one remembers one's perserverance." ~Yoko Ono

I love warm weather! I love the feel of the sunshine on my face and the sight of flowers in bloom. I love the fresh smell of a rain shower in the springtime and the sound of crashing waves at the beach. But as much as I adore the spring & summer months, I am still so thankful that I live in an area that experiences each of the four seasons. There is such beauty in the fall, with the yellow, orange & red leaves decorating the trees...or in a landscape covered in a blanket of white snow. I really don't think I would appreciate the magic of a bright summer day, if it weren't for the darker & colder days of winter.

What is your favorite season?

  1. Hi Dawn - how nice to see that we have the same on our lists! Me too with the seasons; I was on top of a mountain at the weekend skiing and with the sun-shining I could see little particles of snow dust and in the distance - the sea!! how wonderful for sun and snow!
