When Spring arrives, you can see the beautiful flowers starting to slowly release their delicate petals and make a sea of colour surround you. When Summer comes, you can keep cool underneath the dappled and lush green leaves and paddle in the crystal clear water of the gushing stream. In Autumn you can see the leaves falling in colors of yellow, orange and crimson and are creating a carpet of colour on the ground. If you go in Winter, you can build huge and friendly snowmen, do fun sledding and make snowballs. Maybe you could have snowball fights. Nicky Nook surely is the best place for anyone!
