The weekend was filled with snow play
and a wintry walk

Monday brought loud cheers 
when school cancelled due to road conditions

By Tuesday,
the roads had cleared

so I hopped, skipped, jumped to 
one of the biggest 'Winter Gardens' in Europe
covering three acres with 650 different plantings

Although it is January,
there were already blooms in the garden

extremely fragrant Daphne Bholua 'Jacqueline Postill' and hellebore

witch hazel

I was completely smitten by the bark in the birch grove

Enjoy the rest of your week!
