Some time ago I discovered a wonderful Swedish blog Roses and Stuff by Katarina. I must admit I'm a bit partial to blogs (and bloggers) in Sweden. My youngest son has lived in Sweden for the past year where he is serving a mission for our church. He will be there for another year before he returns home. As you might imagine, I miss this young man more than words can say but I am so happy for the opportunity he has been given to serve in such a beautiful country. Sweden is the land of many of our ancestors and I have been blessed to become familiar with this country and many of its beautiful people by visiting some of the blogs originating there. Katarina's blog is one of those.
Each Friday Katarina hosts Blommig Fredag
or Blooming Friday.
This week the theme is WINTER.
|Winter in This Grandmother's Garden|
Here's my contribution for Blommig Fredag.
A collection of Winter scenes
as viewed through my camera lens
describing all that's wonderful about Winter!
Now if it just wasn't so cold!
Thank you Katarina for hosting such a delightful meme.
Winter's magic wand adorns everything it touches
with a sense of wonder and beauty.

Winter here is always a playground of fun!

In our gardens, Winter often comes early...
|Early Snow... Leaves on Trees|
|Coral Bells Ringing|
|Early Snow Alyssum|
And often returns with surprise visits...
|Surprise Snow of May 2009|
|Dahlia Caught by the Surprise|
|Clematis Bud Not Sure if it's times to Open|
But there is no doubt that Winter always brings beauty to everything it touches.
Winter... it's a season we celebrate!
