These twelve photos were taken in a walk around the gardens this morning in the Gardens at Waters East. - - 1.15.14   Notice all the wonderful patterns formed by the snow on plants, sculptures, and stone.  - - -   A feast for the eyes in design.

no photos are “staged”, “arranged”, or ”photo-shopped” in anyway.
What is posted – is what it here.  It is what it is.

  1. The snow shows the a beautiful side of winter.

  2. Love the fountainhead. Ours was stolen - must get another! Thanks for the inspiration

  3. How very, very lovely - and a perfect contrast with your summer garden pictures. You are so lucky to live where you do!

  4. How wonderful for the plants to be able to sleep all winter, tucked into their snowy beds. I love the sculptural quality of snow. Austere yet so beautiful.
