TODAY'S FLOWERS - Winter's garden

Winter has come with -7°C and even colder,
and the flowers in the gardens are sleeping, decorated with snow.
Some hide in wintergardens behind thick panes of glass,
but some are artificial at all and begin to glow only at dusk.
Wow, come and see the magic!





Flowers from our friends' retreat some 30 miles from Vienna.

Oh wow, your friends live in a magic wonderland!!! This is so beautiful, I can't write about, so magic.... Selbst in meiner Muttersprache Deutsch unbeschreiblich schön, nicht nur der Ausblick auch die Aufnahmen!!! Ihr solltet alle Fotobücher dieser Welt machen :), unglaublich! Schon beim Bild Nummer 1 konnte ich vor Staunen und Bewundern meinen Mund nicht mehr schliessen, ich bin absolut begeistert! :) - Ganz liebe Grüße Karin ;))

Lovely display, especially the rose leaves with snow. I'm still hoping to see some rear ice flowers on a window.

Maria, minus 7 is very cold. the rose leaves are still hanging on, pretty with the snow on them. The lantern flowers make the garden magic.

hello
I have gone all the way back through December to catch up. Wow, your city is beautiful under the lights. I loved the sky photo last picture on Dec 11th. The refections in the water were glorious. Thanks for sharing your walks with us and your holidays. Peace
