I enjoyed my intensive French course this weekend. We were asked what our favourite season was. Interestingly, all the English people (and I) chose spring.
All the foreigners (from Columbia, Spain, Japan, South Africa) chose summer.
The English grumble as much about summer as about winter. Extremes don’t suit them.
Spring is a very English, very Anglican season if you like, not too hot, not too cold, nothing to grumble about!
