Yesterday is history, tomorrow is mystery, and today is a gift, that is why it is called the present.

Eleanor Roosevelt

Januargrau. Dauerregen. Land unter. Zeit, eine schöne Erinnerung hervorzukramen, die einige Tage zurückliegt, aber mein Herz noch heute mit Freude füllt. Es war bitterkalt, Eisblumen bildeten sich am Gewächshaus, aber drinnen sassen meine Pflänzchen gemütlich in der eigentümlich duftenden Luft, die so typisch für dieses Ambiente ist. Die Sonne ging gerade hinter den Bäumen auf, Frost funkelte auf Gräsern und Hagebutten, und alles war ganz still…nur die Vögel flatterten geschäftig zwischen den Futterhäuschen hin und her. So ist nicht nur das Heute, sondern auch das Gestern ein Geschenk. Bevor ich euch nun auf einen Rundgang durch den winterlichen Garten mitnehme, möchte ich die Gewinnerin der Buchverlosung verkünden: Herzlichen Glückwunsch, liebe Susanne Winkler 💐 schreibe mir bitte deine Adresse per Mail. So, und nun geht’s los…viel Spass bei den Bildern und ein gemütliches Wochenende!

January grey. Steady rain. Land submerged. Time to dig up a beautiful memory, which is already a few days old but still fills my heart with joy. It was bitterly cold, ice flowers were blooming on the glass of the greenhouse, but inside my plants were sitting comfortably in the sweet smelling air. The sun was just rising behind the trees, grasses and rose hips were sparkling in the frost and it was so quiet…all I heard were the birds fluttering from one feeder to another. So not only today is a present but also yesterday. Before I take you on a walk through the winter garden, I want to present the winner of the book draw: Congratulations, dear Susanne Winkler 💐. And now let’s go…enjoy the pics and your weekend!

      1. All is well with me Annette, thank you kindly for asking. I simply have lost my desire to blog at the moment. Too many other important things on my mind right now. Plus, there are no flowers and no snow. So everything is brown or gray. Nothing worthy of a blog post for sure. I did redecorate a room, and maybe someday I’ll do a post on that while waiting for spring. Even though I’m not posting, don’t you stop. Your way with words and beautiful photos always make my day!

  1. Oh what fabulous photos as always Annette. I remain in awe of your photographic skills. They really capture the essence of a walk in a frosty winter garden. I imagine though that it was good to get back into the warmth ❄️😃

  2. Beautiful photos of your winter garden Annette. 😃 I love the quote. We must savour every special moment and remember these at intervalls to give us strength. 🌷

  3. Gorgeous quote and images, Annette 👏 although it gets more difficult by the day we have to keep reminding ourselves of the good things

  4. Wonderful photos Annette and wise words. It is more challenging to live in the present right now as we long for freedom but yes, you are right, each moment is a gift.
