We should have a Going-Away Party for Winter. We could build a bonfire out of snow shovels. We could toast the removing of the tarp from the pump house. And we could give gifts ... of heavy coats ... to the closets.
I have a feeling that it wouldn't be a tearful, sad farewell, though. Everyone I have spoken to is long tired of cold and dreary Winter. The "So long 'til next time" would probably be more like "Good bye and good riddance."
However, I must admit that we should give Winter a hug and say thank you for the chill that helps some plants grow better. And the extra little bit of nitrogen that the snow added to the soil. And especially thank you for helping us to more fully enjoy the beauty of spring.
Have a beautiful day!
SOMETIMES YOU JUST GET LUCKY
