Something About the Winter That I Like
Something about the Snow that I Like
All the grass outside, the trees, cars, houses and everything on the outside world is covered in white snow. What a beautiful scenery to look at and enjoy. People walking their dogs, children enjoying the snow, making snowman and riding their sledges while their parents cheer and keep an eye on them.
Sometimes we always think of the negative effects of winter like it's too cold for us, our heating bills go up, sometimes due to heavy snow we can not get to work, me included but I still like the snow and its whiteness. There is something about the snow that excites me. You might think I am mad but there are things I really like about the winter.
There are still positive effects why I like winter. Apart from doing things like crocheting, cooking, cleaning, listening to music indoors, I enjoy watching the falling snow outside. Maybe because we have no snow in the Philippines I am so drawn to the snow. I also go out for walks during the winter and take loads of photos because I do appreciate the beauty of snowy wonderland.
I just love the whiteness of the snow and the way it covers everything on the earth's surface. Ah, it's just so amazing and so beautiful to look at and enjoy. I just want to enjoy the snow while it's there because it won't stay for long. Soon it melts away and soon it will be gone.
I also like waiting for the daffodils to start opening their lovely buds smiling like the sun. The blue bells and tulips coming out, the roses leaves start to shoot out, the leaves of the apple, plum and my pear trees suddenly come out. How wonderful it is to witness these happen during the last month of winter.
Sadly, winter is nearly over but there is something more to look forward to, the springtime. More blooming flowers and fruit trees to look forward to and more to enjoy. Another thing I like about winter I learnt about hubbing. I shall tell my friends to start hubbing especially during wintertime. Lots of things to do, hopefully next winter I will become an expert hubber.

The Negative Effects of Snow
The Negative effects of winter that I do not like are: the plants die, the roads get blocked with ice, the paths can get slippery due to the snow, the water outside turns into ice, the cars don't start straightaway sometimes, our heating bills go up, the rooftops are full of snow and it is freezing that sometimes we don't want to go out.
Despite these negative effects of winter, I won't miss the opportunity to go out there and explore the white snow on the ground. It is so magical to see the white snow everywhere you go. I also love the snowflakes falling from the heavens like showers. I enjoy taking photos of the snow. It is nice to snap that moment when everything is white on earth because after a short period all the ice will melt away until next winter time.
