Our Winter Garden




Happy Weekend!

We have had some lovely winter days here this year so
when I saw we had a new coat of snow last night I
took a stroll through the garden with my camera.
Above, is our little Gardener's Cottage.


                                                               I love this heart shaped wreath on the old farm gate.

                                                                     The Gardener's Cottage in winter.

                                                                                 


                                                           This old rustic birdhouse adds charm to
                                                           boathouse porch.
                                                                  Another rustic birdhouse on an old
                                                                   tree stump.          
                The north end of the barn decked out for Christmas.

                                                                           
                                                                       The Boathouse

                                                                 The arbor that my husband and son built.

                                                                Our winter lamp post.


                                                           The old hammock in the woods.        



I didn't get all the way around the garden before it was
time to go for our morning walk hopefully there will be
time tomorrow but our temperature is taking a big dip
tonight so it might not be as pleasant so photography.

Wishing you a wonderful weekend!

Carolyn

Such a beautiful winter landscape. I don't always get a chance to comment (harder to do when I'm on my phone) but I do love reading your posts and seeing your lovely photos. Wishing you all the best in this New Year.

So beautiful Carolyn. There is something so homey & charming about bird houses in the snow. Winter wonderland at its prettiest.

It looks beautiful. It's going to be a bitterly cold night here too and all day tomorrow then a warm up and rain. I hope our snow doesn't all melt.

It's all so beautiful, especially the skates and the burlap bow on the lamp post.

Oh my gosh these photos are so beautiful. It seems so odd that you are in the snow and I am in the sunshine in NZ. We have had the hottest Christmas ever with no rain for over a month, it feels refreshing just to look at the coolness of the snow in those photos.

I love your gardeners cottage, I am looking at having a studio put in my garden, that cottage would be perfect :)

I hope you had a lovely Christmas and New Year, look forward to seeing more of your stunning garden, especially in the Spring.

Gorgeous! Love the sleigh outside your barn! The various pairs of skates add so much charm to each vignette. You've captured the beauty of winter perfectly.
