Four seasons, one view.

    1. My only wish was that I had brilliant orange trees in that last shot...but there isn't one from this view! Only red crab apples! haha.

    3. Once you paint them you have to give a sanding and fresh coat every couple of years. We didn't want to start that horrid cycle! haha. You know me...I like it grey!

  3. The winter photo is certainly lovely but I love the changes in your garden. I can't guarantee a great winter photo the way you can.
    I never got to wear my new winter coat last year (13/14) it was far too warm so no good frosts and no snow. We'll see what this winter produces. So far this autumn has been amazingly warm: 70º (21C) forecast for Friday. FAR too hot for almost November. It's been lovely but I superstitiously worry we will have snowstorms and avalanches (OK extremely rare in North London) next week.

    1. Isn't that strange...and we had snow on the ground all winter long, I think! We are supposed to have lots of snow and very cold temps this winter...so we will see! I may be the only one in the country that is still happy come next March. haha...

      Snow is fun...avalanches? Not so much!

  4. No we don't expect avalanches! We bought this house because it's halfway up a hill so away from the brook that floods but London is quite mild most of the time so we don't get a lot of scary weather. Of course, when we are in Switzerland.... who knows? The next valley along from where Terry skis they have the Swiss avalanche study centre. I forget the name, but if you ever see film of scientists in a concrete bunker watching an avalanche thundering towards them - well, that's probably quite local to us.

  6. You should duck! I'm questioning your sanity now. :)
    I like #2, if for no other reason than that the snow is gone. I do admit it can be pretty though!

    1. but for the record...I'm not ready for snow yet. I want to enjoy fall until it officially ends on December 21st.

  7. I hate the winter, as any normal sane person would. I love the summer, again, as any normal sane person should. I am not mad. . . . .unlike someone I could name; she knows who she is . . . . . . . just saying.

    1. Yes, spring is really pretty, too...I love the blooming trees!

    2. Yes is true, but I love autumn leaves!

  9. Yep, I have to agree the winter one LOOKS best. I IMAGINE the Fall one SMELLS best and the Spring one FEELS best. Summer? Not sure what to say about Summer except that it's always a blinding rush and has more work tacked to it than any of the rest. At least for me. :) But they all play an important part I guess.

    1. I agree...I like summer least of all! But this summer was at least beautiful weather...very atypical and a wonderful surprise!

    1. We will be cold enough for snow this weekend, too! Seems a little early!

  11. I like the photo of the winter one best . . . but I don't like the winter best 'by a long chalk'.
    There is a big difference!! . . . I hate winter (just like Keith) and I just want to hibernate until it warms up again.
    I think you seem ok and comfortable in the winter because of your Cherokee blood which would make you warm enough even if you lived in a wigwam . . . . lol Hi Pink Cloud . . . . :)
    But seriously . . . it is great to see the four seasons and to see the comparisons . . . one thing missing . . . a YouTube of Vivaldi's "Four Seasons" . . . lol

    1. haha...we say, "By a long shot"

      I'm not really warm blooded...I get cold and shiver! But I love everything about winter...the snow, the clothes, the food, the holidays. And you can always drink something hot and put on a sweater!

    2. We say a long shot too.
      Understand why you love the winter . . . if it was WARM I would too . . . .
      . . and you are certainly not cold blooded . . .you are lovely! . . . :)

  13. How lovely to have all the seasons. I still waiting to see if the green trees from our balcony are going to change colors...still green.

    1. There isn't much green left here...the trees are either bare or full of color. Funny how different our states can be! We might get snow over the weekend!

  14. Love that you were photobombed by a leaf - ha! All four photos are glorious to see - nature in all her glory. But I love winter best too. And I think the fence should stay exactly as it is. :-) Blends in beautifully with the garden. I guess it will be Garden Girl's first winter! You may have to lend her a hat and mitts - the gargoyle looks like he could hold his own.

    1. I agree...no paint on the fence...you just get stuck redoing it year after year! I like it natural. Garden Girl will look festive with snow on her head, won't she? ha.

  15. Love it! I would really enjoy having at least three seasons...probably not the snow, though.

    1. Well, you are in a sunshine state. :) Come to Ohio and you'll learn to love snow! haha.

    2. I do agree that the snow is beautiful. So quiet and peaceful, but I think driving in it would scare me to death!

  16. Nice comparison of the seasons.

    Enjoy your day...

  18. You startled me with that first photo - I thought "wait, what? Where did it snow already?" Here in Minnesota it has been known to snow on or before Halloween, but not very often.
