Well, it's snowing here again.
It's probably snowing where ever you are too, the way this winter has been.
I have been wistfully wishing to be outside in a warm sunny garden,
surrounded by flowers and greenery.
Unfortunately, the ground hog says that's not going to happen any time soon.
So, I've dug into my photo archives
to bring you this little tour of garden statuary and flowers.
For several years, I was asked to photograph the gardens
that were featured on our local Garden Walk
and then make sets of notecards to give to the gardeners as thank you gifts.
Many of these photos in this post are the result of that gig.
Come along with me for a little winter break.
and let's see what we can find.
Here's a path in my friend Anna's gardens.
And a gorgeous gazing ball from my friend Nina's garden.
You may remember the post I wrote about her garden... you can see it here.
Here's an enchanting little fella
And a fish fountain
A gazing ball that belonged to my Mom
And an everlasting fruit basket.
Another gorgeous gazing ball, nestled in the trees
An armillary in the ivy
And a little girl with a net.
Here's a lady having a wardrobe malfunction...
And a lad on the alert.
Here's a nice, secluded spot to rest-
Try to feel that warm sun on your face.
Some garden treillage
And another fountain amid the flowers
A gigantic dragonfly at the Morton Arboretum
And my friend Alice's arbor....
such a sweet spot.
Hurry, please, Spring!
