Colors in the Dead of Winter #4

Color in the Dead of Winter

 Daylily - Blade

In this part of the world,  Winters can be long, cold, and white.  With that in mind, Gardens at Waters East has decided to post a four part series bringing together lots of never before seen photos of the gardens to help brighten up the Winter months with colors of the growing seasons.  Each posting has twenty-five photos.  You can check out as many as you like.  There are more than enough to bring some color to you life this time of year.

 Russian Sage, Rudbeckia
Lake Michigan 

The pictures have been saved over the months in a special file which contains thousands of never before published photos.  Gardens at Waters East thought – “it is now time to put some of them out there”.  They need the light of day.  Hope they cheer up you Winter months.
