    Another gorgeous post, Linda! Certainly gives Mother Nature and Jack Frost a good name and bumps up their reputations! lol! The winter pictures of your garden are magical, a delight to view just as the summer photos were.
    Thanks for sharing…

      Thanks, Tammy! I have been experimenting with different photo programs and having fun with it. I am thrilled that you are enjoying the pics.

    Hi Linda,

    Beautiful pictures…Like you, I love my garden but I never thought to take pictures of it in winter. As this is the last winter here, I guess I’ll have to do that with the new one. I’ll have to get you to recommend some plant varieties for the new garden when we plan it, as your garden looks great in summer, too.

      Hi Brenda,

      Thanks for subscribing, forwarding the blog to friends and for liking the pics!

      I imagine there is some separation anxiety having to leave a mature garden. Perhaps you could choose some of your favourite, more well-established plants to relocate to your new home. Even peonies, which are often fussy about where they live, can sometimes be transplanted with excellent results.

      Plants such as boxwoods, euonymous and English ivies all maintain their foliage extending their impact throughout the seasons. Yew trees are lovely such specimens, too – just bear in mind that they will grow to large sizes if left unchecked. Last season, at our request, the contractor who was installing our new walkway pulled up several large yews that had outgrown the space near the front of our house. He was delighted to take them home with him for instant impact in his own yard. And we were delighted they were able to be saved!

      One of the prettiest flowering trees is the Hawthorne, which is well suited to smaller gardens. Not a lot of our local nurseries seem to stock these, but many nursery owners are willing to special order them.

      Call me at planting time!
