    I think early summer (right around this time of year!) is one of my favorites. It's not suffocatingly hot yet, and all the plants are growing really fast. It's usually a little damp out, and warm. The way this time of year smells is deeply pleasant to me, and gives me some therian feelings in a big way.

    I also love autumn, though. I live in New England so we have a very picturesque autumn in particular. I love the crisp mornings, the first frost, the smell of wood smoke from people's chimneys.

    When I lived in Vermont, people called the period between March and late May "mud season" - and for good reason. I actually really like it, though. The first warm winds, everything dripping from snow melt, the ground emerging and being cold but smelling of earth and life, not just snow. There was someone who lived down the road who gathered sap from the trees in the area for maple syrup. Those buckets going up was a sure sign of spring being right around the corner.

    To be honest, I think I love most parts of most seasons. The only part of the year I consistently dislike is the middle-to-end of winter, where it's dark out at, like, 4 PM, and the snow already looks kind of dirty and tired, but you're not excited about getting more of it, either.

    I change my mind. I am starting to like fall and winter even more. Its not so much because I like the cold but because it gets rid of all the bugs and ticks here. Also the extreme heat that comes along with summer and not because of me sweeting because I sweet even when its cold and I am doing something.

    It's usually been summer. It still is, really, but we've had a drought and some nasty heat waves the last few years. Makes hanging around outside a lot less pleasant. When summers in Missouri were cooler, I'd lounge around outside and soak up the sun.

    Still, summer is when there's the most animal life, and when the flowers are blooming.

    Spring, usually.

    These summers here in Wyoming seem nice though. I suppose my favorite season depends on the circumstances. I like them all in different ways.

    Also, I'm still stuck in Wyoming. Hey, it's a very nice place though! I could live here....

    I swear autumn's been getting shorter each year.

    Right now, I'm living in the Sonoran Desert, and I think my favorite season here is going to be fall. It's starting to get cool, but it's still wet enough that there's a lot of life out in the desert--though this is an unusually wet fall. Were I not working in long clothes in the middle of the desert, the benefits of the monsoon season might be worth the heat.

    I really love them all. The best thing about living in Missouri, for me, was the longer, milder spring and autumn. I come from the west, where both the days and seasons tend to have brutal hot-cold extremes. Spring is Mud Season (tm), and autumn on the plains tends to be a few mild days of tree-colors before WIND WIND WIND blasts through and decimates the leaves.

    Where I live now is less windy. The spring and autumn patterns here seem to be almost more brutal. We get a few weeks of up-down temperatures and then it stabilizes on one extreme, haha. But we've had another week and a half of absolutely sublime autumn weather just now and I've loved every second of it.

    In general I am a fan of summer. I'm a solar-powered, heat-impervious, compulsively outdoorsy little sun sprite. Give me all the bright mornings and green smells and electrical storms and wild insects and herps.

    I like winter when there is snow. I also enjoy grey gloomy winter weather, but I get less of that here! I just try to take advantage of the extra sunlight to battle my seasonal blues and get outside more. Unfortunately, I've gotten only more and more sensitive to the cold. I wear the heaviest-weight wool thermals available now, sometimes layered with heavyweight down, a hoodie, a fleece, and an outercoat... and I can still be cold. I just don't produce a lot of heat unless I'm really exerting myself.

    I really like jackets and hoodies and hats and scarves, though, so at least I get to wear fun stuff this time of year!
