Spring is a wonderful season. The grass is green and there are new green leaves on the trees. The birds come back from the south and begin to build their nests. The sun shines brightly, the days are warm and eve­rything begins to grow.

Then summer comes. The weather is usually fine in summer. There are beautiful flowers in the gardens and fields, in the meadows and woods. Everybody likes summer. A lot of people leave the towns and go to the country or to the seaside to spend their holidays. Summer is the best season for sports in the open air. Summer is harvest time in the south.
