Tuesday 4 ~ The Four Seasons
Glad to have you back for Toni Taddeo's Tuesday 4.
The idea is to promote blogging and friendship and allow you to get to know yourself and others through 4 questions asked each week.
Let's talk about the seasons. Summer has just passed and we have begun our journey into autumn.
1. How would you describe each of the four seasons?
Fall - crisp, cosy, nature, gold and orange, long shadows, bare branches, layers, spice, hot beverages, heavier food, busy, sad because winter is coming
Winter - cold, rain, heavy rain, gray, very little sunshine, short days, unpredictable, indoor activities, heavy clothes, anticipating spring
Spring - renewal, joy, new shoots, leaves unfurling, wonder, green, colourful, birds
Summer - heat, sunny, too much watering of the garden, unpredictable, wildfires
2. How do you generally feel during each season? Do you suffer allergy, feel tired, sad, happy, energized? What does each season do for you?
Generally I feel a lot of joy and energy as soon as spring arrives. I also feel a bit of anxiety because I'm always behind in getting the house in order and the gardens planted in readiness for summer season. I usually get behind no matter how I try. Though I love the autumn season it is also when I suffer the most with physical ailments such as cold, flu, aches and pains and stuffed nose due to allergies. I also suffer from stuffed nose and congested sinuses during spring when all the new growth happens.
Despite the physical discomforts I love both spring and fall best. Sadness also attends me (and many other locals) in the fall season because I'm sad about the coming winter. We get very little light in our winter months and the sky seldom breaks clear. I feel tired for much of the winter season due to the lack of light and I make a special effort to get out to concerts and movies and other social events so that I don't stay in the house for too long a stretch. Outings are not that affordable any more but still I look for special events that are doable & affordable. I also try and get friends to join in with me for a social outing.
3. If there is to be only one season for you to live in, which one would it be and why?
Probably the spring season. I absolutely love the joy and happiness I get from the reawakening of nature all around me, the end of gray and dark skies, arrival of the longer, sunny days and people out and about after a winter of hibernation. It is also my favourite time of year because of the cherry blossoms that happen in April. The blossoms are just stunning and one of the great joys I look forward to each year.
4. What color(s) do you associate with summer, winter, autumn and spring? Example: maybe summer is green, winter is white..etc.
Fall - orange, gold, yellow, red, brown, tan
Winter - gray, blue-ish gray, brown, earth tones
Spring - white, blue, light pink, dark pink, red, yellow, lavender and so on.
Summer - every colour of spring, various shades of green,blue of the water and mountains
