Spring - FINALLY HERE!!!

Like everyone living in this area of the country – I AM HAPPY!  Finally, the Spring flowers have started to bloom. It has been a very cold and snowy winter in the area.  In fact, the worst snow storm every recorded since records were started over a century ago, happened only a few short weeks ago.
The Gardens at Waters Eastwants of share the joy of the season.
Believe me, this is a good thing!

Guatemala - Pescador.2

This is the second in a two-part series posting some of the many flowers while in Santiago Atitlan, Guatemala. These photos were all taken in the gardens at a really nice little hotel called - Pescador.  We were treated to a wonderful time and enjoyed our stay – the flowers added to a great experience.

Do enjoy some of the beauty of Guatemala.

Guatemala - Pescador.1

These photos were all taken in the gardens at a really nice little hotel in Santiago Atitlan, Guatemala - Pescador.  The owner Jose Antonio, and his staff are very accommodating and polite. They even took some of us up to a mountain top - El Mirador – Rey Tepulto - to view Lake Atitlan. Great views.

As you can also see, the flowers at the hotel are very very nice.  So nice to see while at home we still have winter and snow!

A Garden is a Friend ---

Sunrise at Gardens at Waters East

With all the snow the last four day, I thought it nice to be reminded that better days are coming!!!  This has been the most snow ever recorded in one storm here in this area of the country. LOTS & LOTS
So, not wanting to lose sight of the wonderful gardens here, and to remind us all of the gardens we have at our homes and enjoy all over the world, I thought this would cheer us up and give us that wild expectation of Spring to come!


This is a photo taken in Guatemala this past week.  
I have many photos of flowers I will be sharing in the days ahead,
 that I took on my trip there.
I find the container - inspiring!!!

 This and all the following photos from the Gardens at Waters East,
are meant to remind us that our gardens do bring us joy.

 Our gardens are a "friend".

Things are looking up!!!
