WINTER GARDEN

When it looks like this in the garden outside....

(The old iron rose arbor)


( St. Francis is hidden among the arching ice laden branches of the tall asters-cocooning him in a natural protection from the elements)


( All the while, Gabriel stands guard over the courtyard as the cardinals flutter about looking for seed...)

.....It is of the greatest comfort to know that inside, along with a blazing fire, and pots of hot black tea, I will spend the evening in front of the television watching this man, Mark Walberg, host of one of my favorite PBS shows, Antiques Road Show...

Your garden looks like white lace. Very pretty but I'm glad you have a cozy home to spend the night inside.

Ah, is there anything better than being inside, snug and warm, with snow all around you outside?? Enjoy!
