Winter in Cambridge

Winter has been fickle this year for many of us. if you need a little snow and ice fix, Kriss Gandier from Cambridge, Ontario has that covered for you!

"I am inspired with some of the lovely winter pictures, so I decided to submit a few as well. The first one is a picture of our downtown area in the Galt part of Cambridge, along the Grand River.  The other pictures are of my garden in 2013, when we had a lot of snow as well as a bad freezing rain, that caused a lot of damage, but it created a lot of amazing and beautiful sights."

    Love your ice covered shrubs. You have a lot of wildlife in Cambridge. I hope to see photos of your garden this summer! I am always out in storms and afterwards knocking the snow off my conifers and rhodies. I had severe breakage one year and now strive to prevent that. Still despite tieing twine around my Thujas, with this last 2 foot snow I had my taller vertical conifers on the ground. I hope they regain their 'figures' this spring.

    Gosh, could those red berries look any redder ? They are very eye-catching and provide a beautiful contrast again the snow and ice. I'm sure they caught the attention of a few birds as well.

    Beautiful pictures, especially those "ice berries". I love snow, but at the same time those ice pics are a painful reminder of the ice storm we just had here a couple of weeks ago. So much damage to the garden...ugh. It's going to be quite a testament to the resilience of plants over the next growing season. Fingers crossed! But thanks for the the wonderful snowy scenes since most of our winter so far has been more like a false Spring.

    Love your pots and arrangement. Where did you get the pots. I echo with others, beautiful photos and would love to see your garden in its peak time.

    Wonderful winter photos. Love the red berries and oh-so-pretty iced branches (visually anyway). And oh those pots! Mr. and Mrs. Pothead are charming!

    Yes, where did you find those pots?

    Looks like Cambridge is a very beautiful town. I love the spires in the distance. It's too bad the ice can be so deadly because all those plants encased in it look magical!

    I am so glad impressed that you captured photos of the ice encased shrubs and twigs. Very beautiful. Also love the squirrel soaking up the sunshine - birds do that too and it always catches my breath.

    Brrr! Makes me feel very cold just looking. Snow and ice can be so beautiful - from afar. Those pots are amazing and such a wonderful holiday decoration dripping with icicles. Thanks Kriss

    It is amazing what old man winter provides in beauty at times. Those Ice pictures are beautiful! I love the doves on the chair and the other little animals. Thanks so much for sharing with us.

    Thanks everyone for your great comments. To answer a few of you about the Mr. and Mrs. Pots, I call them my mom and dad pots. I was lucky to get these from my sister, who picked them up at a garage sale, can you believe. I got her started on gardening when she moved here from Elliott Lake, and when she moved again a number of years later I inherited them from her. They have been a special treasure in my garden.
