Time to Plant the Winter Garden

WinGar1Every year as the days get shorter and the temperature drops, I cushion the grim effects of winter by refreshing the design of my winter garden. I can sit with an engrossing novel in this sunny yet snug room, see the snow on the patio outside, and be surrounded by the colors, shapes and smells of some of nature’s most delightful creations: plants and flowers. This year I’ve added Amaryllis, large red flowers full of Christmas spirit, and Paperwhites, which emit an intoxicating smell.

  1. Cath,
    even if we didn’t use this inviting room when I stayed in your home it’s a pleasure for me to look at it again. Tu as raison c’est un endroit precieux de “cosiness” et de couleurs subtiles d’ou l’hiver new-yorkais doit sembler bien peu menacant.

    Je parcours toujours avec avidite les images et les textes que je recois de Belle Maison. You have managed to arrive at a mixture of plain descriptions of materials, shapes,colours and places with remarks which sound very personal, making the all thing uncommon and attractive.
    Je t’embrasse tres affectueusement ainsi que Mitch,
    Marie-Claude
