This post is for the first month of Jude’s Garden Photo Challenge, where for January we’re asked to share photographs of a winter garden.
Those of you who’ve been following my blog over the last year may recognise that these aren’t from the garden that I usually photograph. They were all taken around my sister’s when I was visiting last week. I stayed over night and the one good thing about sleeping on a sofa when everyone is up early to go out to school / work is that I’m awake to catch the early morning light and to photograph before the frost has melted away – and that doesn’t happen very often!
I love all of the little nooks and crannies around my sister’s garden, all the little statues, rocks and shells. It isn’t a large space but it has lots of interesting things to photograph. The statue of Dionysus is probably my favourite item – his weathered, moss covered appearance is appropriate for the Greek god of wine and all things wild.
I hope you all like them.
