    Winter Garden

    "With daffodils mad footnotes for the spring,
    And asters purple asterisks for autumn."
    ~ Conrad Aiken

    "One day, the gardener realizes
    that what she is doing out there
    is actually teaching herself to garden
    by performing a series of experiments.
    This is a pivotal moment."
    ~ Margaret Roach

    "No two gardens are the same.
    No two days are the same in one garden.
    ~ Hugh Johnson

    "A profusion of pink roses bending ragged in the rain
    speaks to me of all gentleness and its enduring."
    ~ William Carlos Williams

    "There is simply the rose; it is perfect
    in every moment of its existence."
    ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

    "We can complain because rose bushes have thorns,
    or rejoice because thorn bushes have roses."
    ~ Abraham Lincoln

    All shot in the last month! We had 3 snowfalls in December, and it hasn't been this "snowy" in N. Texas since we moved here from Pennsylvania (20 yrs). I took most of these shots in jeans,  sweater and flip flops. Not "real" cold. The leaves and roses were caught in beautiful form and color when the cold air chilled everything.

    I love the second photo....all the oranges and blues are spectacular! And the ones of the roses, too. Even when they're dying they still have beauty.

    Such a joyful post today, Tammy! I oooo-ed and aaaaaw-ed as I scrolled down and each of these beautiful pics was revealed. As an avid gardner I sooooo agree with Margaret Roach's quote. I can contest to many successful AND failed "experiments" over the years. I adore your photography.

    Thank you so much for your kind, congratulatory comments. You made my day a bit brighter! Hugs, Terri xoxo

    What a beautiful garden you have!
    And are those bird feeders?
    Did you make them yourself?
    Happy 2010!

    The little white building is a faerie house. We bought a bunch at an arts festival. Some are on stakes in the ground and some hang on tree branches around the garden. Here's the link to the folks who make them: http://www.faeriehouse.com/. The artists are wonderfully warm people who adore faeries!
