Seasons

There are four seasons of the year: winter, spring, summer, and autumn.

Each of the seasons has its importance for nature and we should admit any weather as something to enjoy.

I am going to tell you about all four seasons and give the description of the weather typical for each season.

Winter is the coldest season of the year and December, January, and February are the winter months. In winter, the days become shorter and the nights become longer until winter solstice which usually happens on December 22. After that, minute by minute the days gradually get longer. Days may be very gloomy with snowstorms and even blizzards at times. It can be very cold and unpleasant in winter with temperatures going below -20C. At the same time, winter is a wonderful season too. Many poets have sung winter in their works, for example the beautiful poem by Alexander Pushkin about Frost and the Sun. The gently falling snow sparkles in the sun. It is also a season of joy for fans of winter sports. Snowy slopes and frozen lakes are ready for skiing and skating. I like to go skiing in the early morning.

March, April and May are spring months. Snow melts down. The weather gets warmer and warmer and people put their winter clothes back into the wardrobes. This is the time for nature to revive after the winter sleep. Migratory birds return to their native nests and start to sing in the trees announcing the end of the “all-white” season. The green of fresh leaves and grass takes over. Buds swell up and finally burst into brightly coloured flowers. Sometimes it may rain in spring but usually not for long and very soon the sky would clear up.

June, July and August are the summer months. July is the warmest season of the year. There is hardly a summer when the temperatures do not go over 30C for a few weeks or even a whole month. Days get longer and longer. The longest day of the year is June 22. The sun shines brightly. Sometimes it may drizzle with the sun shining through the rain. People go swimming and sunbathing, or else going hiking through a forest full of flowers of all colours and berries ready to be picked. Grown-ups try to take a holiday in summer. Together with their families, they go to the seaside and enjoy their time. No doubt, summer is the most favourite season for most of people.

Summer does not last forever and finally autumn comes. In early September it may be rather cold and windy, with showery rains everywhere leaving puddles which children merrily splashing through them. In mid-September the days become warmer again. This is when Indian Summer returns summer back for a couple of weeks. Autumn is a season of yellow and orange colours with leaves covering the ground as some magic carpet woven by nature itself. Sometimes in the morning it is foggy. Very rarely the fog maybe very thick but then it would lift and the sun will greet everybody with its last warm rays before winter. There is a lot of sleet with gusts of strong wind. First frosts and snow may come as early as end of October.

By the end of autumn, winter takes over and nature goes on to another cycle.
