Natural Beauty

Hello,
I am having some computer difficulties and it won't let me in between pictures today .So today we are back in the garden to enjoy the natural beauty of the winter garden. And wintry it is again today! The last couple of days seem like January weather with cold winds and some blowing snow. I took these photos a couple of days ago out in our garden and I thought they were worth freezing my little fingers for! I hope you enjoy them too and have a great weekend.

Carolyn

Any of your photos could be turned into a beautiful card. We got 8 inches yesterday and it is still snowing. We don't see much snow so it is very exciting. My neice drived home lastnight from work , it took her 3and 1/2 hours to go 12 miles...lol Have a Very Merry Christmas, my friend.

Hello Carolyn,

I enjoyed seeing your Winter Wonderland immensely!

I have the same birdbath, but cannot leave it outdoors for Winter, so I had a piece of glass cut for it and use it as a side table. :)

Always a joy to visit you! Have a wonderful weekend!

Hi Carolyn,

With a layer of snow your garden looks as fine as it does in the summer! The gate to your garden is so pretty....Your grandson made a very handsome snowman :)! Yesterday I bought a DVD box of the complete Ann series from the 80s. I already had one series on VHS, but it was too old to use. Together with my youngest daughter Annebelle I watched the first episode. We both enjoyed it very much! It's nice to know a friend who lives on that pretty island! I wish you a happy advent weekend!

Lieve groet, Madelief

Mimi said...
