Winter is my off-season, but it isn’t really off-season if, for example, you love skiing or ice skating. Summer — not my favorite season — is very popular. Picnics, barbecue, swimming, and hanging on the beach. To me, beach equals sun-stroke and third degree burns, with sand in unmentionable places.
Autumn is New England in its full glory. If we have an “in” season, autumn is it. So … what’s left?
March and April. After the snow is gone, but before the leaves and flowers appear.
Late November and usually December. When the bright leaves are gone, but the snow hasn’t arrived.
Otherwise, New England and our valley are always in season.
