A Garden Tour

I enjoy going through the thousands of pictures I have of our garden on cold winter evenings with a cup of tea and a jounal at hand to write down any improvements I would like to make.These are a few of my favorite places to sit and enjoy the garden.I hope you will enjoy this stroll through our garden. You can click on these photos to enlarge them for a better view.

Favorite tea spots ,but the centre photo is on our screened porch which is my favorite reading place -so curl up with a good book and a glass of lemonade.I can hear the song of the birds now-can you?
