(ex) Enjoy your spring.

Does it make sense to say "your spring"? People cannot own it. Thanks a lot.

Do you mean spring,the season?

Hmm. It would be a really weird thing to say - except in particular circumstances.

If someone is going to spend the three months of spring on holiday, or taking a special course, or on a work project, THEN one could say it - and use 'your'. Because that person's spring will be different to yours. So you'd both understand the context.

As one living in the southern hemisphere I have told someone in the northern hemisphere to "enjoy your summer".

Even here in Aust the seasons that are experienced in the tropics are very different those in the temperate zone. So a conversation about autumn between an aunt (in the tropics) and myself went something like:
Me: I think autumn is the nicest time - cool nights and clear sunny days.
Aunt: My <experience of> autumn is muggy and wet.
