The pictures remind me of when I was a child. I think even southerners can love the snow and the charm and ambiance that seems to go with a good snow, evergreen trees and a roaring fire in the ski lodge!
My oldest daughter is BIG into snowboarding. I can assure you she loves this type of snow and usually stops by her Aunt Dawn's on her way to the mountains for a snowboard weekend. Our family had the pleasure of skiing in the Alps when were stationed in Germany. I spent most of my time in the lodge with a good book-especially so after I took a bad fall on the bunny slope. The fall was not so painful as scary because it jarred my head. Not a good thing.
Back to the winter structure subject. The first picture is my favorite. It shows what appears to be a tire and a split rail fence to the right of it. Kind of makes one think of summer play to come. The second picture is the shoveled out walkway to the parking area. I don't envy the northerners on the shoveling-though I don't mind shoveling, it is too much in the north! The last picture truly makes me think of the stars who always vacation in Aspen, Colorado. I have never been there but can only imagine it looks like this, and this beauty and the peace that goes with a good snowfall is surely what attracts the rich and famous to Aspen.
Thanks Dawn for sharing the beautiful pictures! If any readers out there have some winter pictures of their gardens they would like to share, just email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
