Each month Gardens at Waters East (GAWE) will post a few never before seen photos of “garden life” called - - BLOG SHOTS.  Here are the photos for this posting.  With all the snow and cold these last weeks, and even more cold tomorrow (-23.3 C for the high not counting the wind chill for the day), we can all use reminders of Spring, Summer, and Autumn in the gardens here on the shore.

  1. Thanks for the 'warm; pictures on this blustery day.

  2. What a treat to see some color, love the flowers and the April sunset was gorgeous. Seems as if we are a long way from April right now, doesn't it? This winter is truly a return to the ones from my childhood...Cold!

  3. It's nice to see some blooms on this frigid wintery day. You've got me thinking about getting some Lady's Mantle again....but not until spring. It's nice to dream isn't it?

  4. Love monarda, Jack! Particularly its leaves with tea, remind me Earle Grey tea with bergamot..

  5. Gorgeous flowers, Jack!
    Love also the picture "looking East over Lake Michigan".
    I never have seen Monarda before... it is very beatiful.
    Thanks for sharing!
