Good idea.. perhaps not just season but also month, bi-yearly, quarterly (as
distinguished from seasons):
n-annually (n=2 for biannual, N=3 for triannual, N=4 for quarterly,...
n=1/2 for bienalle, eg. every two years, n=1/3 for ...) might be of
interest.. Here the implied precision is the modifier.. e.g. a bi-annual
open interval has "points" whose precision are half-years, a bienalle open
interval has "points" with precision of 2 years, etc...
