The Beauty of Nature



                                                                Hello everyone,
                       I am just popping in to share some of the beauty of nature that is surrounding us this spring.We are still doing the finishing touches on our little boathouse but thought you might enjoy a little preview. I love how it reflects on the pond when it is calm out.
                                 Such a relaxing spot to sit for awhile and enjoy the beauty!
                     Sometimes we have a pair of Canada geese and sometimes a pair of mallard ducks.
        As you can see spring is slower coming this year but each day it gets closer!

                                    They do look graceful swimming in the pond.
                                      A thrift shop container will look good with different plants or bouquets.

 So peaceful!

Thank you so much for all your lovely comments and support ~ I am so happy with your response!!!

Take care,
Carolyn

Your boathouse looks so beautiful and just sitting on a chair near the pond enjoying nature is the best time to spend.

Hello Carolyn
You captured the boathouse in just the right light to make it look like an artist's painting.
I look forward to receiving a copy of your book that I ordered.

Nature has its own perfection that many times cannot be improved upon.
Some other times, however ... your work on your property seems to be those other times.
Great pictures, great atmosphere.

Carolyn, you truly do have it all there in your secret garden. It is a haven. The only thing you don't have is a mountain view and palm trees. That little boathouse is darling and I love the picture of the geese in your pond; such a peaceful place! Thank you for sharing it with the world.

Blessings,
Sandi

I just love the dock and Adirondack chairs overlooking the reflections on the pond. Surely a beautiful vignette year-round with infinite variety as seasons and weather and daylight change.
