Seasons at Gardenside Rose Cottage

Hello dear ones,

This post is about our little cottage/shed in different seasons.  I thought it's interesting how things change from season to season.  


"There is no season such delight can bring,
As Summer, Autumn, Winter and the Spring."
~ William Browne, 1630

~ Winter ~

Winter is the time of promise because there is so little to do - or because you can now and then permit yourself the luxury of thinking so.
~ Stanley Crawford

Winter dies into Spring, to be born again in the Autumn.

~ Spring ~

Spring is nature's way of saying, "Let's Party!"
~ Robin Williams

White-throated Sparrow hand carved by my dear husband.
When my DH finished carving the birds I like to take them out, and take photos of them with flowers and things.

Spring arrives and with it comes . . . cute little creatures.

Can you see the cuties?

~ Summer ~

These photos below were taken last summer after a heavy rain, you can see the flooded ditch.  We are planning, later on, to add a little bridge.

Nature gave us our own stream :)

I love to seat in the swing and look at the beautiful mountains any season of the year!

I also love to contemplate my flowers, specially when you find one so unique and with this kind of shape.

Tea anyone?

May you be seated . . . I hope you enjoy your visit!

This beautiful Cardinal was hand carved by my dear husband and gifted to my beloved mother.

  12. Hi Wendy,
    I do love your little garden cottage. It is really adorable and imagine having a stream running in front of it! Can't wait to see the bridge you build there. Your hubby's wooden birds are just wonderful. My hubby and I love watching the birds and our son gifted us with a really good bird book for Christmas because we are getting into it more all the time. We may even join a club down the road. Love the birdies!
    Thank you for sharing your lovely post with us and I really enjoyed all your quotes too. Have a delightful week, my friend.


  13. Your little shed is sweet in every season. The porch swing is a great spot to enjoy a cup of tea.

  14. Hello Wendy,
    What a lovely post about your garden and cottage! Seeing it in all seasons and all weather is really something. Your outdoor tea setting looks beautiful! Tea outdoors is so special!
    Thanks so much for sharing with us.

  15. The shed is wonderful! Perfect backdrop for a garden tea party. Love your teapot and teacup garden art! Thanks for linking to Tuesday Cuppa Tea!

  16. I have been dreaming nightly of a little cottage like what you have. I had seen yours a couple of months ago, but it has been on my mind and I didn't know where i had seen it. I love it... what is the measurements? Do you use it for storage or is it all painted white with a skim of pink, lace and white filmy material????

  17. Delightful little cottage and photos! I love the little birds you're husband made! So sweet!
    Have a wonderful week!
    sandy :)

  19. Wow gorgeous, I would love to have a cottage like that for a studio, it's perfection. Your hubby is very talented, those carvings are beautiful.Thanks for visiting and following my blog, I'm thrilled to be following you too!
