Question 2 Think about it
  1. (i) When spring came, it was still winter in the garden. What does winter stand for or indicate here?

(i) When Spring came, it was still Winter in the garden. In the story, Winter denotes desolate and a negative atmosphere where the trees and flowers never blossom. Winter represents gloominess, depression and longingness for happiness to arrive. In such cold weather, there is snow everywhere and cold winds blow all around where trees tend to droop and birds do not chirp. As the children were not playing in the Giant’s garden, Spring did not enter it. As a result, even the trees did not blossom and the birds did not sing sweet songs in the garden.
