Outdoor photography is my hobby. I like Fall for the scenery (and November skies), Spring for songbird migration and Winter because that when the migrating seagulls show up in my town. My favorite temperatures are 50s and cloudy skies (no shadows).

I despise summer and typically stay indoors compared to other seasons. Hate the heat (past 75 is too hot for me), incessant sunshine haze, too many people in traffic, the ugly green color of the trees in the summer and the birds you never see because they get enough bugs to eat so they don't need me to feed them (to lure them for photographs). Not fond of crickets getting in my home, either. Trees look better in September, early October and April when they are chartreuse here and late October and the first week of November when they are colorful. Never take summer vacations and didn't when I was in the workforce, either.

I enjoy the change of seasons, but winter is my favorite due to my love of skiing. Fall would be my second favorite. I am usually too warm and can easily keep comfortable in the fall and winter.

Then I moved to Florida, and now the fall is ruined for me. It's as hot and humid here in September as it was in August, and besides it's the height of hurricane season! No changing leaves, I'm too old to go back to school, blah.

T. S. Eliot said, "April is the cruellest month," but in Florida, for me, that designation belongs to September.

Yeah, I'm in Hawaii, no seasons, no bueno.

I wrote how I feel about them in anticipation of a move!!

i enjoy April through about the middle of August. I hate fall because the days are so short. Spring and summer are the best. Long days, blue skies, birds are singing. Just love everything about it. Once the middle of August rolls around and the days are shorter I start to despise it. I look forward to May when the orioles and hummingbirds return and I can plant my garden.

Spring because it holds so much promise. The sun comes out more and warms the Earth, the days get longer, and the bulbs, seeds and plants I planted or tended in the fall start to bloom. The perfume from my hyacinths is heavenly! I like early summer (June), but don't care for the heat of July and August. Still, I like the long days of summer. Early fall is very nice, but as it lingers, I feel my annual bout of SAD (seasonal affective disorder) tapping me on the shoulder. By the time we turn the clocks back and it gets dark so early, I am feeling pretty low. TG I get through the winter with the help of my special light/lamp and lots of Vitamin D. Thinking about spring also helps me get through winter.

I would have to say winter is my favorite season. I can dress for the cold, but I can't dress for the relentless heat of summer. That's not to say that I don't enjoy summer, I do. There's good in all of the seasons, but there's just something about walking in the snow on a night with a full moon. Magic

Autumn, not too hot or too cold. Beautiful colors and crisp air.

I was about to write along similar lines when I read your post. I don't have a favorite season because change is always welcome after two or three months of any given weather pattern.
