Summer in Winter

Now that summer is nearly here I’d like to share one of my secret strategies to make it through the cold, grey winter: my sunroom. When we moved into our West Orange home there was an extra room that originally was an open porch. The previous owners enclosed the space to create a sunroom. I decided to convert it into a winter garden, alive with plants and flowers year round. I found two very comfortable canvass chairs, perfect for reading the papers on Sunday morning. The other furnishings are rustic tables, garden sculptures, trellises and bird feeders, completing the illusion of a warm, green outdoor space in the midst of winter. If, like me, you get depressed during the long winter months, some time in our foret vierge (rain forest) is guaranteed to lift your spirits.
