Changing Seasons

Many places in the United States or even the world are either hot year-round or cold year-round. In the New England states, we have the luxury of changing seasons. In the summer, we get to enjoy heading to the beach, swimming in the pool and sunbathing. In the fall, we have festivals, build bonfires, and enjoy the leaves changing color. In winter, we get to experience sledding, snowboarding, and the peacefulness of gently falling snow. Finally, in spring, we enjoy beautiful flowers and greenery as well as wildlife wandering the area.
