#AtoZChallenge 2018 – A for Anew

One of the things I like about the State I live in – Utah – is that there are four seasons and those seasons are clear as day.

  • Winter – when the ground is often sprinkled with white powder snow and the plants are frosty and well, dead.
  • Fall or Autumn – when the leaves from just about every tree – except spruce, of course because it’s an evergreen – turn yellow, orange, or red before floating to the ground and getting crushed by feet or cars.
  • Summer – that’s when it’s blistering hot and the humidity is dangerously low causing wildfires, not to mention if you skimp on water, your lawn will end up, well, dead.
  • Spring – one of my favorite of the four seasons beside fall.

Spring, (in my opinion) is when everything start anew. All plants start sprouting, like the ones in the picture. These are from my raspberry plant. The burning bush next to the raspberries have already spread to the next door, which is my previous home. I spent most of the morning yesterday cutting the branches in the other yard, trying to keep the burning bush from spreading. It was hard work because the branches were so thick. There were times I wished we had an electric saw, this was one of those times.

  1. Are the seasons really so clear cut where you live? It’s reassuring that they appear to be from what you wrote. Here in England the seasons are often mixed up, seeming moreso the last couple of years. Spring was making it’s way again just before winter arrived and so appears late this year, although I wonder it’s been too early some other recent years and maybe Nature works things fine and it’s human confusion that’s the problem. This was a wonderful opening post, I’ll return for more later. Cheers

    • Yes, the seasons are quite clear where I live, or shall I say, were. The weather this year has been very confusing, not just for here but worldwide, I think. We had a week of spring followed by a week of winter. It snowed today. Hard to believe that it’s snowing in April.
