Seasons and weather

There are four seasons in the year. They are spring, summer, autumn and winter.

Spring is a wonderful season. In spring nature awakens from its winter sleep. The days grow longer and the nights grow shorter. The birds begin to sing and build their nests. The air is fresh and the sun shines in the sky.

Summer comes in June. It is the hottest season of the year. There are many parks and gardens in Kyiv, which are so beautiful in summer. Many people have their vacation in summer. They go for walks, bathe in rivers and lakes, lie in the sun, pick flowers in the fields and grow fruit and vegetables in the gardens.

In autumn the weather often changes and it gets colder and colder. The autumn sky is often grey and cloudy. It is usually windy and rainy. People gather mushrooms in the forests.

In the middle of November it usually begins to snow. In winter the sun sets early and rises late. Sometimes it is very cold. It often snows.
