GPC: January’s Winter Garden

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.

    • I always know I’ll lose sleep when I stay over at Nic’s! I like being able to photograph early in the day but it never happens at home (I’m generally awake to late at night to be awake early in the morning!) so its good to have an opportunity to do so. I’m glad you like the pictures. 🙂

  1. Your sister has a lovely garden, I love the statues and the seed heads. Nice to have something to look at in the winter. And the frost just adds that little extra. Thank you so much for joining in. 🙂

    • Thank you. 🙂 I’m glad you like them. I spotted a number of comments on Jude’s blog about how ‘Northern Hemistherist’ his challenge is!

      • Haha. Yes I bit discrimatory. But I suppose it is as nice to see warm weather shots in winter as it is to see cool snowy shots in high summer of the south!
