I Don't Think Winter Is So Bad, But....

It's cold in Michigan and I don't even mind the snow.  To be honest, I would be ecstatic if we had about 10 more inches of on the ground. In saying that, it does not mean I am not getting heart flutters looking at this beautiful garden. If this was March I would be nearly attempting to jump through my computer screen. These pictures communicate a nearly tangible feeling and mood.  In looking at these I can almost smell the freshly cut grass and feel the summer moisture in the air.  I love how this garden has a balance between being formal and structured, yet also welcoming and comfortable. Settled in between hills in New Hampshire, this "garden" is actually a series of 40 different gardens tied together by pebbled and grassy walkways (can you BELIEVE?!)  We can all thank Traditional Home and the green-thumb-savvy couple, the Fry's.  I can just imagine sipping on an Arnold Palmer....or maybe a Mojito...
