The 12 Views of Christmas

 Season’s Greetings!

As has become the Bloom Report tradition, I have assembled the 7th annual “12 Views of Christmas” for you this holiday season, featuring Christmas- themed scenes from around the Historic Gardens. In recent years, this has become more of challenge as there has been very little snowfall in December, and I’m still old fashioned enough to think that Christmas themed photos ought to have snow in them! So shown here are some recent photos – we did get a bit of white stuff this week – as well as some snowy shots from last winter to round out the selection.

Enjoy!

The First Views of Christmas…

Why not start with this perfectly shaped Christmas tree…

The lower pond area was pretty special after a bit of snow this past week…

This view of the Acadian House is always interesting…

The Rose Arbour a few days ago, standing proudly…

I love the contrast in the winter Governor’s Garden…

And of course, a photo of holly fits right in!


Funky Feature of the Week:

The Graziella Grass is just amazing against the blue sky!


And more Views of Christmas…

The Governor’s Garden during Sunday’s snowfall…

This snowy shot was from last January…

And this, also from last winter, of the berries on the Rose Glow Barberry…

The Rose Arbour, from a distance…

A cone seems fitting for the season…

This winter view of Allain’s River is a favourite…


Fan Foto of the Week:

This is a bit of a different take on the Fan Foto section… but it fits the theme very well!

The following link is to an online video presentation featuring Annapolis Royal. While it focusses on the Victorian Christmas, it highlights many aspects of the Town and has several images of the Historic Gardens. Kudos to Ryan Scranton for the great photos, and to Chris Cooper for his creative genius in producing this gem! In just a few days “A Victorian Christmas” was viewed more than one million times – what incredible promotion for Annapolis Royal and area!

Please follow the link, relax and enjoy this taste of Christmas in our beautiful Town of Annapolis Royal. You’ll be glad you did!

Bonus Shot:

This was taken last winter, but seems like a nice finishing shot for a “12 Views of Christmas” email…
