Winterthur is open again.
We renewed our membership!
We went for a walk...
a 1 1/2 hour walk.
Chinese Witch Hazel
promises of lovely blooms
coming soon to a garden near me
But some things are already blooming...
Dear Son Nathan
surrounded by aconites
waiting to bud
I love the way this picture came out,
also waiting to bud.
I love the silver color.
can't wait until these bloom
down in the Quarry Garden
Rachel and Christopher in the background
Squills or Glory of the Snow
I looked them up online and only got more confused
if you know which they are leave me a comment
They redid the bridge in Enchanted Woods
It is lovely now. I love the iron railings.
My son, who is a lot like his mom, noticed that one of the rocks had fossils in it.
It is the 10th anniversary of the Enchanted Woods this year.
They are redoing a few things in preparation for a celebration.
A new walkway for the bird nest.
Some new supports and other wood pieces going into the Faerie Cottage.
I love how this photo came out too.
It is the roof of the Faerie Cottage.
Such an interesting angle and dramatic photo.
My favorite spot to sit in all of Winterthur.
There are 4 bench swings to sit on around the may pole.
The sky was gorgeous
in spite of the clouds.
Fields of snowdrops, snowflakes and aconite.
In this iron sculpture
I have no idea if these, there were 2 of them, have any practical purpose but...
inside the one on the left there was a bird nest.
I love how this stunning, dramatic cloud and tree picture came out
delicate little flowers around the dramatic tree roots
So that was our first walk at Winterthur for 2011
There will be a lot more of them...
and a lot more pictures, too.
