Today she says, “When I began my garden journey many decades ago I learned gardens were more than flowers and edible plants. Living at a latitude where gardens could be void of color and apparent life for more than four months a year I purposefully set out to create a space where I could witness the beauty of the changing seasons.

“After a recent snowfall a walk through the gardens was rejuvenating. The lower garden revealed patterns in the snow created by the granite blocks of the labyrinth and the holly, cedars, junipers and euonymus punctuated the snow with various shades of green.”

Beautiful, Bonnie! I love the bumps of the stones in the labyrinth, and your sculptures are particularly nice in the snow. Thanks for sharing!

—-Winter is the perfect time to take a photographic stroll through the photos you took in your garden this year……and then send some in to me at [email protected]!

    There's nothing more beautiful than the contrast of winter white. I'm really loving those stacked colorful terra cotta pots in the last photo Bonnie. Thanks for sharing the sights of your winter garden stroll with us.

    Well, Bonnie, I was expecting to wake up to a winter wonderland according to my last night's weather forecast but, so far, nothing...then, I came to GPOD! Your photos give me all the magical snow scenes I could want. I love how your garden cherub looks as if she has a armful of snow and is clasping it to her heart. She's here a few days early... since Friday is Valentines Day.
    Your cottage with its snow laden roof nestled serenely amongst the evergreens is the very definition of picturesque.

    Wonderfully captured photos once again, Bonnie!

    This time, the fine affects and crispness of wintertime ambiance that beautifully covers your garden.
    Nice surprise to see your winter heath(Erica) peeking through
    and blooming! ;)

    This is precisely why I'm always harping on folks in the north country to plant conifers amongst their flower beds.

    That shed looks so cozy and inviting on a snowy day.

    Bonnie, your winter photos are lovely... but I keep going back, and back and back to your beautiful shed. It is soooo inviting.

    It's a nice reminder to see the beauty in the winter season (as much as I'm impatient for Spring!) Lovely walk through your garden!

    Thank you Bonnie for sharing these beautiful snowy moments in your lovely garden! Snow puts an extra blanket of tranquility over everything - I can imagine following your labyrinth path, now gently guided by snowy bumps, to a peaceful white centre. The idea of labyrinths is fascinating to me and I love the look of them. Do you use yours for meditation?

    Gorgeous! I love all the garden art and your shed and trees are stunning. My husband grew up in northwestern PA and really misses the trees and rolling hills. I will show him your photos tonight.

    I, too, am loving that winter scene with your shed! Beautiful!
