OT - A Winter's Walk In The Garden

I have been doing a lot of work this winter on planning the first phase of our five year plan to expand and develop the rose collection at the Summerland Ornamental Gardens here in the South Okanagan of British Columbia. I have almost 200 roses ordered for planting in phase one of this project this spring and summer.

But right now it is winter. Not extreme cold like in the East, but still winter, snow on the ground highs near +2 C lows around -5 C. So right around the freezing mark.

Today, I went for a walk around this 15 acre winter garden. As the saying goes, at more than 100 years old, this garden has good bones. Of course, I had it all to myself! Who walks in the garden in winter? I took quite a few images to try to capture the ambience of the garden. But as is often the case, the images don't quite capture the peace and feel of the Gardens. Still, it was a beautiful peaceful afternoon in the winter garden. Here are a few images for your vicarious enjoyment.

Happy February! Cheers, Rick
