Spring has always been the best season for me ! I feel it like a rebirth after having been dead from October since now. Years ago I had deep seasonal depressions which started at autumn and finished in spring ! It was a desease which wasn't very well known and most of the people couldn't understand. Now I don't have it anymore but I am careful. Each year I go to Egypt into the warm sun and light that makes me support better the short grey and cold days. I also try to keep myself busy and do inside things. As soon as the sun is shining I am out to fill my tank with light.
In spring I feel full of energy ! I could pull out trees and feel just good. The air has a special smell because mother nature wakes up and trees, plants and flowers start to grow and bloom again and fill the air with this special spring parfume ! I love to go out on our patio early mornings (when it doesn't rain) and breeze deeply ! It smells far better than the most expensive parfume !
I love the first little, timid spring signs, like daisies in our grass, the first bushes blooming and the cats happily playing in the sunshine. That's when I feel like a newborn baby, although I am sure a newborn doesn't feel very happy after birth !
This is what I hate, naked trees, everything looking grey, even if there is some color when the sun is shining. I hate snow and therefore also black and white photos, they are depressing.
In autumn and winter I always want to move into a country which doesn't have any seasons, but in spring and summer I love to be here.
