Want a Quickie? Today 12.29.12


(All “Quickies” are photos taken and posted the same day)
These photos were taken this morning at the Gardens at Waters East. - - 12. 29.12
There was more than six inches of snow during the night and early this morning.  Notice all the wonderful patterns formed by the snow on plants, sculptures, and stone.   - - -   A feast for the eyes in design.

  1. Beautiful images.
    Have a great day.

  2. A real beautiful "quicky" today. The snow looks so fresh, clean and virginal. Hope we get this winter some snow too, sometimes we have winters without any snow.
    Wish you all the best for 2013 and a very good gardening year!

  3. All so fresh and clean looking love the Barberry, that Christmas touch.

    great pics

  4. I see several that would make stunning Christmas cards! And thank you for identifying the Barberry; I saw it numerous times during the fall and had no idea what it was!
    Happy New Year!

  5. There is something about the Asian Patio Garden that draws one in just as one wants to step into some paintings. All the nuances that are part of a much larger picture are so "big" in themselves. Awesome. Your pictures always are!

  6. Sun and snow! I love the Asian garden, pine and snow.
    Happy New Year!

  7. Since I don't have snow this year for the holidays, your photos are a gift for the eyes. Happy new year!!!

  8. Wonderful landscape! Happy new year, Jack!!!

  9. Happy new year! So lovely with all the snow, unfortunately it all melted away here just before christmas.
