Garden in winter

Remember When Winter Was Fun!

Posted by Ron Wolford - Seasons

I was scrolling through Sandra Mason's Homeowner Columns and found this article on winter. Sandra is the University of Illinois Extension Horticulture educator for Champaign, Ford, Iroquois and Vermilion counties.

Sandra is an excellent writer. Please check out her Homeowner's column for a wealth of gardening information.

Remember When Winter Was Fun!

Ice, sleet, and freezing rain. Slip sliding our winters away. Remember when winter was fun?

On the first day of winter my true love said to me, "Isn't it nice I don't have to mow the lawn."

On the second day of winter my true love said to me, "I love the change of seasons". I could never live anywhere without it."

On the third day of winter my true love said to me, "The air feels so crisp. Let's go for a hike in the woods."

On the fourth day of winter my true love said to me, "Oh look it's snowing. Let's make snow angels."

On the fifth day of winter my true love said to me, "Hey the pond is frozen. Let's go ice skating."

On the sixth day of winter my true love said to me, "How long can I wear the same long johns?"

On the seventh day of winter my true love said to me, "Hey my nose is frozen. Do you think it can break off?"

On the eighth day of winter my true love said to me, "Oh drat it's snowing again. How many days are there til spring?"

On the ninth day of winter my true love said to me, "I'm so tired of skating down the sidewalk. Do you think we can move the mailbox closer?"

On the tenth day of winter my true love said to me, "I think I see frozen angels stuck in the snow."

On the eleventh day of winter my true love said to me, "Is there a reason for the change of season? Do you think Dad's extra bedroom in Florida is available?"

On the twelfth day of winter my true love said to me, "Will I ever get to mow the lawn again?"

Happy Holly Days from University of Illinois Extension.
