    We have tons of snow here in New York so I needed this breathe of fresh air–thank you!

  9. this is STUNNING! it’s snowing in new york right now; i wish i could beam myself here.

    glad you left a comment on my blog so i could see yours! xo

  10. Oh, I have been there! It’s truly gorgeous. It’s been years ago, but I still remember how stunning it was.


  11. I want to be there now. It is snowing hard here and we expect 6-10″ by evening. Yuck, I am so tired of winter this year and we still have a couple of months until we are assured that spring has sprung:(


  12. The cardinal and the mockingbird families that live in the tree outside our bedroom window just showed up yesterday. And now I find these beautiful garden photos and I am again reminded that spring is just a few breaths away. I can’t wait! Despite the allergies that keep half of my family indoors for the first month or so, I’m so ready for warm weather and flowers…


  13. This gardens are just beautiful. So soothing to look at, as I peek out at my back yard covered in snow. Hurry up and get here Spring-lol.

    Have a great weekend!

  20. I thought I recognized the photo of the gate – I live about 20 minutes away from Butchart Gardens and love visiting it in every season. The photos are gorgeous, especially the brilliant hyacinths.
