So are you a summer or a winter person? I am definitely a summer person. I recently took the top photo overlooking our yard from a side window in our foyer. The bottom photo was taken this summer. It looks out over our hydrangeas, and down below to the flower garden and vegetable garden, with the woods beyond. It's funny, you can't even see our lavender plants in the summer photo, but they are visible in the winter photos. The winter photo is also pretty with the snow and grasses...but the flowers are what really make me happy. I miss gardening.
