The Fight of The Year

The Fight of the Year

And there goes the bell for the third month  and

Winter comes out of his corner looking groggy

Spring leads with a left to the head

followed by a sharp right to the body

daffodils

primroses

crocuses

snowdrops

lilacs

violets

pussy willow

Winter can’t take much more punishment  and

Spring shows no signs of tiring

tadpoles

squirrels

baalambs

badgers

bunny rabbits

mad march hares

horse and hounds

Spring is merciless

Winter won’t go the whole twelve rounds

bobtail clouds

scallywag winds

the sun

the pavement artist

in every town

a left to the chin  and

Winter’s down!

1 tomatoes

2 radish

3 cucumber

4 onions

5 beetroot

6 celery

7 and any

8 amount

9 of lettuce

10 for dinner

Winter’s out for the count

Spring is the winner!

  1. I do a garden survey at the end of March each year. I have mislaid my records for earlier years, but think I can confidently state that this year spring is the latest since (my) records began! Sue Sue’s Trifle’s
