I enjoy winter for the break it gives from the heat we have here for most of the year, which makes it much nicer to go out walking or running during the day, but visually it's nothing special. It never snows here and we rarely have frost. Most of the trees are evergreen so they don't look any different either.
Sometimes! When we have snow it's wonderful but then there's the awful dirty slush when the thaw comes.... the winter before last it snowed and snowed and snowed without really settling, so it was like being in a snow globe! Absolutely magical :)
