Welcome to September  7    Today’s prompt is:  Your favorite season of the year and why.

So that you don’t feel so alone in your embarrassment, here’s a little about my favorite season:

Everyone who reads my blog knows that my comfort zone is between 85F and 95F with 70% humidity.  

My favorite season is summer, and in my part of Florida, that usually lasts from June until mid-October.

The heat is glorious, but there are two more reasons I love summer:  Color and scent.

I love to open my door on a balmy summer evening to take in the scent of 4’0clocks planted on either side of the entrance. Each time I inhale an aroma better than a rose, it brings a feeling of peace over my entire body. 

Walking near my work, residences in the small rural city proliferate with magnolias, azaleas, hibiscus, jasmine and honeysuckle; a veritable casserole of scents.

Here are the rules:

  1. A prompt for #TMAT120 will be given the first Thursday of every month. The prompt challenge begins whenever it’s that day in your time zone. For example:  12:01am to 11:59pm September 7th.  It ends on the 2nd Thursday of the month.  

  2. I will publish each entry by the end of the  month, with a link to your blog. 

  3. Your #TMAT120 post needs to be 120 words — no more, no less.   People who participate in limited-word prompts aren’t expecting a 1,000 word explanation before it begins.

  4. Use the picture above to show that you are participating in the #TMAT120. Please don’t alter (except for size).  

  5. Please don’t use hard-core curse words. Only lazy writers use variations of the F word for shock “value.”

  6. Copy and paste the URL in the reply section below, or you can do a pingback if you have a WordPress blog.

  7. Take time to read other people’s posts, after all it’s only 120 words. And you might make a new friend.
