Sunday Writing Prompt – 11th October – A Change of Season

Michael has set a change of season as our Sunday prompt this week.

He asks us to write our response to what a change of season means to you. In the south its about the arrival of spring and the approach of summer, In the north its about autumn and the coming of winter.
It heralds the arrival of daylight saving for some and the end to it for others.
Do you welcome one season over another?
The way things are at the moment, the change of season seems to slip by more or less unnoticed. One day it’s warm and sunny, the next cold and damp, but this has been the constant change all year, and something we can’t attribute to Covid.

Years ago you had definite seasons, Winter, Spring, Summer and Autumn. Fashion houses would push out their designs and colour co-ordinates accordingly, and even the weather would accommodate you so you knew roughly where you were throughout the year.
That’s not the case now, and our ‘seasons’ are wet, cold, hot and dry, but any of that can happen any time throughout the 365 day year!
October in the UK sees the end of British Summer Time as the clocks go back and we get an extra hour’s sleep. The reverse occurs in March, and for years this simple hour change confused the hell out of the dog, but when we unofficially retired in 2007 and our time was our own, she stopped noticing.
Personally I love Autumn, the colours are spectacular and warming, despite the change in temperatures. On the other hand, Spring sees the birth of all things new having laid dormant through the colder months, the greens are varied, bright and cleansing.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    I agree Di, there are times when the seasons seem to blend into each other and you’re not sure just where you are. Down here its getting warmer all the time, the number of ‘cold’ winter days is less each year, or appears to be.

  2. Sadje says:

    Autumn colors are spectacular.

  3. The word throught is the past tense of thrinking and it expresses the act of having thought of something while you were drinking.

    I think I love spring and autumn best. I am not a big fan of winter, and summer I do like, as long as its not too hot!
