What is Your Favourite Season?

Views of St. James's (with 's!) Park- the oldest of the Royal Parks of London near Buckingham Palace.

I was particularly drawn to the beautiful fall colours which were brilliant and wonderful when I was there in person, so I thought I'd definitely photograph them.
I love autumn. I love the colours, the smell, the cool and crisp days of fall. I'm always in awe of trees painted brightly.
But Nature has a spectacular show to offer us in each season...

Nah, I love all the seasons. Even winter!

What is your favourite season, my dears? xx

Summer by far but when I see your lovely photos.. I can be swayed. ;)

TexWisGirl said...

i used to love autumn in Wisconsin where i grew up. here in Texas it is too fleeting and muted by comparison. so i love Texas' springs! :)

Crissi said...

Hello,
beautiful autumn pictures, atmospheric
regards Crissi

Lynn said...

I don't think Winter will get many votes, so I say Winter. :) The weather in the southeast US is not bad in the winter, just cold enough that I can have a fire in the fireplace most nights and something comforting cooking in the kitchen. Love that.

Bob Bushell said...

Autumn and Spring are my favourites, and, I do like your pictures.

David Allen Waters said...

right now is my fav time, the crisp air, the rustle of leaves under foot....wearing layers of sweaters,scarves and hats....perfection :)

ladyfi said...

Wonderful autumn pictures! It's been mild here so autumn isn't in full swing yet.

Sandra said...

cool swings in the last shot, the seem to be suspended in air.
we don't have 4 seasons here in Florida, my favorite here is tied between fall and spring because i like it when we wake up to 69 and the high is 85 and that is what we get both seasons. the only time of the year i don't like here is July/Aug/Sept
your autumn scenes are beautiful.

Ege said...

Mostly I love all seasons, but I prefer the green ones.. ;)

I live where it can be bitter cold but snow is a consolation. Fall is nice, but I like summer best, when flowers are blooming and the garden begins to produce and when a rural pastor can get away with wearing shorts and sandals.

These are just beautiful images of fall. Although summer is my favorite time of the year, fall is my fave for colors! As you so finely illustrate here!

Lisa @ Two Bears Farm said...

I love Spring, specifically late April and early May.

Journaling Woman said...

I'm bad because I don't like winter--at all--not one bit. I'm shivering right now thinking of it. I like the other three though.

Fábio Martins said...

I love the second framework! Nice job

George said...

Although the colors you've captured are glorious, I'm not sure I can name a favorite season. Winter is definitely my least favorite -- too many blizzards as a boy.

Filip Demuinck said...

For pictures autumn and winter. For travel spring and summer.

Greetings,

Traditionally, my favorite has been Fall for the same reasons you mentioned. I always liked going back to school, and the smell of brand new school supplies. I like long sleeves and sweaters. As a young schoolboy, I liked the combined smell of Teacher's perfume and her coffee.

But I am finding Spring to be more and more attractive. The exuberance of new life and the landscape's monochrome cloak yielding to colors reborn.

Then, when you add the paramount significance of celebrating Easter (or Resurrection Sunday), it's a pretty good rival to my usual favorite.

Kelly said...

Beautiful photos, Betty!!

I think I like Spring best, though we don't always have a pronounced Spring or Fall around here.

Erin said...

These are amazing. Great job!
Inspired by these wonderful fall pics.

Betty Manousos@ Cut and Dry said...

Sylvia K said...

Such beautiful captures and wonderful colors1 There is something about every season that I love -- right now it is the beautiful, dramatic colors of autumn, the delicate, more pastel colors of spring! And summer and winter have their own beauty! But I find that the beauty is everywhere, every season, it's just a little harder to find sometimes. Hope your week is going well, Betty! Enjoy!

imac said...

I love them all - for their each special reason.

Unknown Mami said...

I love them all too for different reasons.

Nancy @ A Rural Journal said...

I think spring is my favorite season. After the long Nebraska winters, it's wonderful when the weather warms up and the world begins to turn green again. :)

ΑΘΗΝΑ said...

I think that my favourite season is spring.The climate this season is not very cold not very hot.During winter often I suffer from fever and in the summer I can't stand the hot.But I admit that these two seasons offer us many beautiful landscapes as they form the trees and the mountains.Also,autumn seems some dull to me.

blueviolet said...

I absolutely and completely love fall more than any other season!

Leontien said...

I love all the colorful leaves on the grass, but summer is my favorite season.

Ms. A said...

As I've gotten older, I've grown to like the cool and cold seasons, rather than summer. I don't like the heat we have here. Lovely fall colors you've captured!

Rick said...

I love each season as I'm in it - so right now it's autumn with all its richly decorated foliage. You've captured it very nicely with these shots !

Have a great Wednesday Betty.

Just Be Real said...

Summer seems to be the best for me. Blessings to you dear one.

Leovi said...

Wow! Delicious light with spectacular fall colors that delight ... all are very good but the first is great.

The Blonde Duck said...

The only thing I don't like about fall is how busy it always is! And I can't stand winter--I love being outside!

dianne said...

Glorious Autumn photographs Betty dear, the colours are so beautiful.
I find something wonderful about each season, they all have their special appeal.
xoxoxo ♡

By far, my favorite season is summer, but each one really has its own "specialness."

Anonymous said...

The season I like the most is spring with it's freshness and crisp days.

The fall colors in these pics are wonderful-thank you for posting them.
That park looks so beautiful. Care you share some more pictures of it?

deb duty said...

I like spring best but you sure make fall look beautiful! Love your photos!

MeerkatMarlene said...

What gloriously beautiful moments you have captured! Thank you for sharing with us. I love all seasons, but Fall and the starkness of winter have always been slightly ahead.

Becky said...

Absolutely gorgeous :) I love that park

Without a doubt, I love autumn best - it's just too short . . . lovely park and photographs to show it.

Chic Homeschool Mama said...

serendipity is Sweet said...

Well if I didn't love fall, these shots would make me fall in love ;)

shirley said...

I have to say that Fall is my favorite. Then the first snowfall of Winter. After that, we can go straight to Spring and summer.
Beautiful photos.

Kristin said...

I adore fall! I only wish the leaves changed here!

Cedar said...

I do love fall and you captured some beautiful fall trees and colors! So lovely!

Enrique G.A. said...

A color to the brown and could not be otherwise at this time of year, autumn.

Fall, definitely! I love the warm colors of fall, the pumpkiney smells and the crisp cool mornings. Please fall -- stay a long time.

Pradeepa said...

Georgia said...

Nice fall photographs, Betty.
My favorite season is Fall!

Pat Tillett said...

I think my favorite season is spring. Where I live there really isn't too much difference between seasons. Too bad the palm trees don't change colors in autumn!

Marissa @Life On Our Side Of The Mountain said...

These are so beautiful! I used to dread Autumn because I disliked winter so badly...it just let me know that winter was swiftly coming when I started seeing all the leaves falling.
These days, I have a whole different way of seeing fall. I am enjoying everything about it!
What a difference a little perspective can make. :)

James said...

Great post and beautiful pictures! We really don't have noticeable seasonal changes here but when I lived in Pennsylvania my favorite seasons where fall,winter and spring in that order.

James said...

BTW I'll be walking around St. James's Park in a little over a month. Too bad all of the beautiful leaves will be gone.

Αγαπημένη μου Μπεττούλα
Είναι τόσο υπέροχες οι φωτογραφίες σου από το Λονδίνο, με τα χρυσά χρώματα του φθινοπώρου!!!
Συγγνώμη που αργώ λίγο να έρθω, γιατί στην Χαλκιδική έχει ακόμα πολύ ζέστη και κολυμπάω.
Αλλά δεν χάνω καμία σου ανάρτηση.
Μπορώ να πω ότι αγαπώ όλες τις εποχές, κάθε μία έχει την δική της γοητεία!
Πολλά φιλάκια και χαιρετισμούς σ όλη σου την οικογένεια
