  1. Aw, we missed it by a week! Hope you Thanksgiving was enjoyable!

  2. Snow is wonderful to see the bones of a garden. My favs are definitely the juxtaposition of asian sculpture and brambled fence and the lily sculpture. Then that image of the blue spruce would look da bomb large and framed in any living room.

  3. You have snow! Wonderful! We still have no snow, pity.

  4. Greetings far away, our first snow melted soon, but weatherman have promissed snow soon again - I do not miss snow at all ...
    You have very beautiful landscapes there, it's interesting to visit Lake Michigan by your pictures ! I like cairns too !

  5. I love your photography ...

    I decided to follow your blog and discover the beautiful Lake Michigan, very different from my lake, Lake Geneva !

  6. Beautiful with the snow! I like the name "Queen Ann's lace", in swedish we call this plant "wild carrot", not so beutiful.. Here are coming more and more snow, some years we have no snow before end of january, so it's a bit early. Have a nice week!/Sophia
