A Beautiful Winter Landscape

We had our first real snow just a couple of days ago and more is expected tonight and tomorrow. I just love it when the snow piles up on the tree and shrub branches.

Here is a little photo tour around the Greenville Arms 1889 Inn.

This in the front of our inn. We like to call that shrub "the wild hair" bush. Every Spring I give it a crew cut and by winter it has all those lovely curving branches.

Some may think my garden looks sloppy in the fall because I don't trim back the cone flowers (Echinacea), but I just love the look of the seed pods with their little snow hats!

Winter is a lovely time to visit our inn and our area. The snow lends a peaceful and quiet grace to the landscape. We also offer some mid-week winter specials on our rates.
