    Rank the seasons

    If you had to rank the four seasons in order of your preference, how would they stack up? For me it's: Spring, Fall, Winter, Summer. When I was a teenager and experienced things in different ways with entirely different outlook it used to be: Summer, Winter, Spring, Fall.

    I just like having seasons! Each one has stuff I love in them and stuff I don't like. I can't imagine having the same weather all the time. As the seasons turn, I am always happily anticipating the next one.

    Spring
    Fall
    Summer
    Winter

    I use to like fall best, but now fall reminds me that winter is right around the corner.
    The older I get, the less I like winter.

    Fall because it provides relief from the long hot summer
    Spring because everything starts growing and it's nice and green
    Winter because I hate hot weather and you can always add another layer of clothing to stay warm
    Summer = see above (hate hot weather)

    Spring because of the nice weather
    Summer because of the visits from the family members
    Fall because of the nice weather
    Winter is last because of the pressure of the holiday seasons

    Fall - Winter - Spring, although I know the hot, humid weather is coming close behind. Summer is the one I like the least. I'm an indoor person. I do like having four seasons. A warm climate is the last place I would want to live. I couldn't stand for it to be cold all the time either. 60 - 80 degrees would be perfect for me.

    Summer- Although it's hot here, I can stay inside in the A/C
    Spring- Second cause everything is new (although allergies are rampant!)
    Fall - I seem to get depressed as days get shorter.
    Winter - Last, because of holiday pressure and blah of January February although we don't have too much real winter here.

    That would be the order for me, too. I LOVE fall! And I don't mind winter tho here in WI it lasts for six months & the darkness gets old after a while. But not nearly as old as this heat & humidity has gotten! Spring is nice but since we have lots of snow (usually), I dread the puddles & mud. But, once again, I'll take it over the heat. When we lived in FL, I was miserable... no seasons! Christmas lights on palm trees? It was just weird to me...

    Fall...love the cooler, dry weather and the gorgeous colors....perfect for hiking.
    Spring...fresh and everything comes alive, although most years it's wet/foggy here.
    Summer....we don't get much summer so like to enjoy the 'sunshine' days.
    Winter........too long, too cold! (I also hate the holiday pressure)

    Fall, Spring, Summer then Winter.
    When it seems like the world is falling to pieces remember that the pieces are falling into place. We are nearing closer to the End Times.

    I think they all have their positive elements but:

    Spring - anticipation of things to come, new green growth
    Autumn - cool and quiet
    Summer - possibiity of some sunshine (I live in England, so it ain't guaranteed!)
    Winter - holiday season, but it comes last as I am not a fan of the cold or ice
    Quilting is my vice



    Live well, laugh often, love much

    Winter is by far my favorite. I can put clothes on to keep warm enough but there's a limit as to how much I can take off in the summer time. I really can't stand hot weather. Fall and Spring are tied for second. Summer is just tolerated because of vacations.
    If no one ever experimented we'd all still be making 4 patches.

    You can't change them. You have to like them just the way they are because if you do change them where does the progression of a season go? To me there is a "reason for the season" and you can't love one without having the other before it or after it! Spring brings forth Summer - Summer slows down for Autumn - Autumn prepares and puts the flowers to bed for Winter - Winter sleeps and readies itself for the burst of Spring! That being said, I will go with
    Spring
    Summer
    Autumn
    Winter

    In that order!

    And, that being said, I better get ready to go out and mow the lawn!!!!!! Edie

    Me too about winter
    Fall, though, still ranks 1st. I live in New England and the colours are glorious.

    Fall - can raise windows for fresh air
    Spring - can raise windows
    Winter - can tolerate it 'cause I'm sooo hot natured
    Summer - just 'forget about it'. Right now it is sooo hot, 100+ for days & days & days but they say last summer was even hotter. It won't start getting cooler until probably Oct. Each day I just pray the AC keeps on going!

    For me it is Spring first because lifes beginnings with all those flowers, then Summer because gardening is wonderful to dig in the dirt with hands, smelling the earth, picking and eating your produce, then there are so many things to do. Fall because of the warm days and Cool nights where you can sleep with the windows open. Winter last because I hate to shovel snow, although the sun on the snow/ice crystals is beautiful and magical. Each season offers something.

    just Spring and Fall. I've had enough of Winters in Colorado. Now if I were back in Texas, Spring, Fall, summer and then Winter. Spring brings so many lovely different shades of green in Houston.
