Photo Essay - Winter 2010-11 #10

Gardens at Waters East has taken more than a thousand (1000) pictures of the gardens during this Winter season.  Taking photos was a great way to be outdoors while yet unable to get down in the dirt.

Since there are so many pictures, only a small portion have been selected to reflect the days of the Winter 2010 – 2011.  They are broken into a number of postings.  Viewers, if they so choose, can look at a one or the other postings in this series and not have to view a long running almost never ending “photo shoot”.

Here then, is an overview and a recollection of Winter past.  May it prove to be an opportunity for “reflection” and “pause” on a season that quiets us all down just a little, and gets us ready for the seemingly endless and busy season of gardening and growth which comes next.

Enjoy the Beauty.     Enjoy the Quiet
 Pause & Reflect
