In "The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe," C.S. Lewis uses the phrase,". . . always winter, never Christmas. . . " How sad that would be! And how sad if "always winter."
In July in Grand Forks, I could almost forget that winter exists!
I sure wouldn't mind if this were MY garden!
They say that parts of the world that actually have winter have won a biological lottery of sorts; countries without winter have a much great struggle with disease, water supplies, agriculture. . .
But, oh! The glories of summer!
