Early Winter Garden

Red Bridge and Pond, Magnolia Gardens, Charleston, SC

In early winter there are still plenty of hues to see in Lowcountry gardens,
 and abundant pools of still waters to reflect their beauty. 
Beholding such delights is a fine way to begin a new year!

Happy New Year from Charleston!

  30. What a great image - the reflections in the water and the colours are breathtaking. It reminds me of an impressionist painting my Claude Monet.

    I wish you and yours a brilliant New Year filled with happiness, plenty of joy and many wonderful experiences. I look forward to visiting your blog throughout 2013!
