Brad of Rooted in California says that in his locale, the East Bay of the San Francisco Bay Area, seasons are different:
I've often thought California needed new seasons. The classic four have nothing to do with us. Here they would be Rain, Warm/Green, Fog, Warm/brown, Clear/Chill and then back to Rain.I really enjoyed thinking about Brad's definitions, and then I wondered about gardeners in other regions that don't fall in the classic (Northern European?) seasons of summer, autumn, winter, and spring. I'd love to hear from other gardeners: What are the seasons where you garden?
