Garden Relaxation

Hello everyone,
     I was just going through some of my old pictures of some of my favorite spots to relax in the garden so i made a few collages to share with you today.
I know some of you can probably have tea in the garden already but for us it will be awhile yet as we still have snow that is slowly but steadily melting.
So, I am really looking forward to being outdoors in the garden .

Or relaxing on the balcony overlooking the garden.
A picnic in the garden would be nice too!

I hope you enjoyed a little relaxation time in our garden.
I am joining Cindy for Show and Tell Friday again at My Romantic Home.
Take care,

Beautiful, Carolyn! Not happy about the new blanket of snow we have but at least we know it won't be around long! Your cookie recipe sounds lovely! Enjoy your weekend.

Susan said...

Hi Carolyn...Your garden pictures warmed my heart. They actually made me want to cry. Yeah.


Seriously, I loved the beautiful photographs and they renewed my hope that some day winter will end.

Carolyn, thanks for your visits and comments to my blog. Susan

Simple Home said...

Your photos are beautiful. It is hard to find that much greenery here in the desert in any season.
I hope you get to enjoy it again soon.
Thanks so much for your prayers for my nephew. They mean so much.

My Cottage Diary said...

Carolyn, your mosaics are so refreshing and engaging! We are starting to break forth in flower here ... saw some forsythia in bloom today, daffodils, and the Bradford Pear trees will be in bloom very soon. Hurray! Bess

Sheila said...

Your garden is so lovely. You must be out from dawn to dusk when the weather is good. Our Alberta winter has been so long it seems - but the time til we'll be smiling in the sunshine is getting closer and closer.I'm concentrating on spring cleaning while I'm wishing the snow would melt

Stan and Jody Gabara said...

Happy Saturday to YOU.

Hélène Flont , french illustrator said...

The pictures of your garden are absolutely "magnifique". Have you still the garden covered with snow at this time of year?

Carol said...

Charming Carolyn! I hope we do get a visit from Spring soon. Your garden is as if in a magical realm . . . safe and free from the harms of the outside world. So romantic and beautiful.

Bloo said...

Hey Carolyn, your house is just stunning! It's like a fairy tale for me! I live in Romania and where I live houses are very dull and grey, no one is interested in decorating, at least they are not interested in making their houses so welcoming as yours.
I've just fallen for your blog!

Kelsey said...

I think most of us blog and add a little joy but your garden is truly the definition of an inspiration. Paradise is what this must be. More please!

Patios clotures said...

This truly was such a lovely and inspired post. Your pictures always speak volumes and I loved hearing your defined thoughts on what makes a garden special.
