So What's Your Vote?

Summer Vs Winter...Are you a snow bunny or a sun lover?

This is a typical summer day at our house. My dogs are outside enjoying the sun and the grass, and I'm working in my flowerbeds and garden. It's warm, beautiful and enjoyable.

Now, jump to the picture below......

I don't take many pictures in the snow, so this is the front yard up against the fence, not where the flowers were, but about 30' away.

Now you tell me, which is more enticing for you?

A few days ago we had very cool weather for our area. It should be in the high 80's and 90's all through August, with an occasional day or so over 100. We spent 3 or 4 days in a row in the low 60's, dropping into the high 40's at night. And it felt like fall.

Can you tell I'm dreading winter? Yep. Don't like it. Not since grade school when snow was fun. When winter arrives I start counting the days until spring.

If I could vote, I'd have three season. Spring, summer and fall. No winter.

How about you? What's your favorite season and why?

I am a winter person - hands down! Summer is fine for all kinds of reasons, but there is just something about the winter - the crispness of the air, the white of the snow - that captures my heart. Maybe it's also the promise of the spring to come, I'm not sure, but I love winter!

We just moved to Victoria and everyone keeps saying, "Oh, it's so nice there. Not cold like Alberta. And no snow." And I keep saying, "But I like the snow!" Snowfall gets me excited for skiing, snowshoeing, skating... so many things to do in the winter! :) I agree with Kameko.

Sigh. I can't believe I'm out voted! Where are all the summer/heat lovers? Help me out here, people!

I hate being cold. The one plus I can think of is that I hole up in my office at home and get more writing done. Other than that, summer wins hands down, for me.

Thanks gals, for stopping by & taking the time to reply! Love hearing from you!
