And Winter Came............



                                                                          Hello everyone,

                                                               This morning we woke up to a
                                                              winter wonderland.Yesterday,
                                                               everything was brown and grey,
                                                              so I am happy to have some snow
                                                              to brighten it up and it more like
                                                              Christmas.However, I will admit we
                                                              don't need all the snow we had last year!

                                                                    I the garden in Winter.



                                                                 The allee garden                                                                                                                                                                      
                                                         We painted our house in June so
                                                          this is the first I have seen the
                                                          new color with a snowy background.

       Our statues add interest
  in the winter garden.



                 The shrubs are laden with snow.





                                                                       The Christmas Cottage
        The pond has a layer of ice.





     Well, now I really want to
              finish decorating for Christmas!

          Have a wonderful weekend,

          Carolyn

Your house looks so lovely in the snow and should be on a Christmas Card and the inside of your house too.

The snow certainly is pretty in your gardens and I love the pond with a skim of ice on it. We got about 15 cm. here so it's a winter wonderland. I wonder if it will stay until Christmas.

Your house and garden look so pretty with the snow. I should like to have snow with Christmas too, but snow on Christmas is rather rare here, last time was 5 years ago I think. This year snow and ice are still far away, we have temperatures upto 14 degr.C. too mild for the time of year.

The snow makes everything look magical! We had a beautiful layer of white a couple of weeks ago. Today is was so nice and warm that after putting Christmas lights in the trees I ended up mowing the front lawn. Crazy!
hugs,
Jann
