In the Garden

Oh how I love my garden under a blanket of snow! There is something so architectural about a winter garden, especially made into a winter wonderland by 12 or so inches of snow!

The new boxwoods are blanketed and had to be dusted off with the broom. I didn’t want any of their little limbs broken!

It seems that the snow really brings out the details of lines and walls!

Looks like white icing on the stone steps…

My favorite garden bench stands elegantly with a cushion of lovely white powder!

Little boxwood “lollipops” stand like soldiers in a row…

And a garden plaque is crowned by the snow…

I adore this little Irish style cottage, given to me by a friend in Atlanta, as its door and window peak out from a mound of snow on its roof!

It sits just beside my circular teak bench in the upper garden. You can just see it on the right corner of the bench!

The snow seems to also bring out the details of this inset antique rosette in this column!

Pyramidal boxwoods look like big white gumdrops!

 I suppose my favorite sight in this winter wonderland is my quatrefoil fountain, surrounded by little boxwoods so perfectly outlined with the snow!

Hope your garden was blanketed with this beautiful snow. I can’t think of anything more peaceful!

A boy and his dog…in the snow!

    I have never lived in the snow Kathryn, but you really have a way of enticing me to the snow so I can see all these little architectural angles and such. I think your rounded bench is my fav.
    Do you expect more snow?

    Stay warm

    PS and the icing on the steps……Looks like steps from Dr Zhivago!

    COOL!! Listen, you showed that antique rosette …do you know “what that is from…or where that “flower” originated?? I have IT EVERYWHERE…for some “gene” reason…and I don’t even go “looking for it”…that flower is in every room of my home (multiple times..) Just curious… Your puppy is wearing his “snow outfit” as well!! franki

  4. Kathryn Greeley says:

    Can’t say I know much about the rosette’s origination. I bought six of these from any English antique dealer several years ago. I bet your puppy is a cutie!!

  5. Kathryn Greeley says:

    Dr. Zhivago was one of my most favorite movies and I think that is why I love a big snow so much! And also why I love a field of daffodils!!

  6. Kathryn Greeley says:

    Oh, I hope we get more snow this winter. But not in April as we sometimes do! By April I am thinking of all of my plants and don’t want them to be bothered by snow or frost and freeze! Where do you live Cindy? I think you would enjoy a nice big peaceful snow!

    We are staying cozy and warm! Sounds like you got snow also! I always check your area and wonder what you weather is Luke.
