Well first of all: I live here ;). And well, for most people it is a very exotic place.
Let's take a one-year trip to Finland. This is how you'd feel the nature:
Two white wisps of cloud. The azure-coloured sky. Yellow spots of light and dark-green shadows in the ground. Bracing zephyr. Birds, bumblebees and mosquitoes. You have a straw in your mouth and a book in front of you. You see ants walking on the yellow, old pages of your book. You start hearing children’s voices from the nearby swimming pool. Suddenly you see a leaf riding in the air. The leaf is red except for small yellow dots in the edge of the leaf. You notice, that all the leaves are hovering down towards the earth and one of them even lands on your book. Suddenly a strong breeze blows and you start feeling cold. As you rise to get an extra shirt, you notice something blue on the ground. Blueberries! You pic some up, but as you’re putting it to your mouth you notice a flake of snow on the berry. Gradually the air is full of hexagonal snowflakes. You need to get a lot of extra clothes, and when you come back outside, you see incredible aurora borealis in the sky. Time goes by and the snow starts melting. The sun comes back to the sky and every single crystal of snow reflects the sun beautifully. After a while the brown grass and wizened flowers start to blossom again.
If a year was just one day, this is how you would feel the four seasons changing.
