Chèvrefeuille prompted with a modern winter kigo, extracted from Jane Reichhold's "Dictionary of Haiku", supporting with such examples

In the tropics, here in Trinidad, there is no winter or cold phases of the year, so the kigo "Joy of living"; i accepted, more so as a prompt for the celebratory aspect of our welcoming a new calendar year

__My opinions are so often deemed incorrect, but in Trinidad / Tobago, I believe the 'dry season' has begun; perhaps a kigo similar to, but far less rigid than our "fall" season. _m

Yes January to June/July is considered our Dry Season, the next cultural season after Christmas/New Years is Carnival
