Garden Enchantment

      Happy Weekend!

       I hope you are enjoying your weekend.

       Even though it is cold here today I am
   starting to dream about the return of
      our garden. In our Zone 5b climate it
             will be April before we can get out there
          but time passes quickly and before we
           know it there will be signs of life again.

So, I have been enjoying looking back
at some of my favorite shots from
previous years.

Ah, Spring time with lots
of color as the daffodils,
tulips etc. bloom.

             Peonies, lilacs and lupins
                 make a pretty combination

                                                                  Tea time among the enchanting!

                                                    I enjoy having lots of places to sit and enjoy the garden.

                                                     Arbors add so much charm in
                                                      the garden.

      I love garden rooms so fences and arbors
add a sense of enclosure.

    Early August is so colorful!

      Another garden room


Deutizas in bloom as well as lilacs
in the background.

When you are tired of gardening it
is good to have a place to relax and
enjoy the view.

                                                                      Lilacs add not only color but
                                                                      an amazing fragrance to the garden.
                                                  It is always fun to dream a little
                                                             of the enchantment of the garden
                                                             even in the middle of winter......
                                                             don't you think?

                                                                          Thank you for visiting!

Oh, Carolyn! I needed your posting today! I just drove home from work in a snow squall. I had an insanely busy day as my job as an RN in a nursing home. Your pictures of your garden have helped me to unwind and think about sunny days amongst the roses, peonies and lilacs in my own garden. Thank you so much!!
Kind regards, Laura

You have so much to look forward to in the spring. The cooler weather here has been perfect for getting my flowerbeds ready. The freeze we had really took a tole. Your pictures are motivating me to move quickly before the heat comes back. Enjoy your weekend!

Hi Carolyn,
Bless you, I am so inspired by your photos. I have been working outside this week. We have 70-degree weather, and I am busy transplanting roses.
