Winter Cloches

I love it when Mary has a cloche party.  I enjoy viewing all the creative posts.
This cloche was inspired from Pinterest. Mine didn't look as good as their's. It always looks so easy! 

Winter camellias from my garden.

I made this pic at Monticello. It was exciting to me to see cloches used in a real garden. My experience has only been seeing them in books until last fall. You can see a little of the beautiful fall foliage in the background. I want to go back in the early summer and see the garden in its prime.

This cloche was in the town of Williamsburg at a small nursery.

Notice the bell cloche at the end of the row! All of the cloches were pricey especially the green ones!!!!!
You can see another post I did on outdoor cloches here.

Linking to Table Top Tuesday, and  Wow Us Wednesday.


  1. I love your winter cloche and it must be so nice to have camilla's in your garden already!Obviously you are much further south then I.
    Thank you for your visit and kind words.

    Take care,

  2. Oh the real thing! How neat. :) I'm jealous that you have camellias.

  3. Beautiful, I have never seen outdoor cloches like these, especially interesting is the green one and the ones of clay. So glad you shared these so we can see cloches in the outdoors. Now I am going over to your other post on cloches that you have linked.

  4. I love the outdoor cloches or garden bells! Yours are very pretty, love the pine cone and pine spray especially. Thanks for stopping by and for your nice comment. xo

  5. Hi, Bonnie! I'm so happy you visited my blog today & left a comment!
    Your cloches are so pretty. Wish I had some so I could have linked up with Marty's party.


  6. Love your camellias under your cloche Bonnie, I'd like to find a striped variety! I've never seen terra cotta bell jars before :)

  7. I love your cloches and showing the ones outside is perfect. So fun. Thanks for joining the party. Hugs, Marty

  8. I had no clue that these were used outdoors in gardens! I just thought they were used for cultivating indoors. I need to get in touch with my farm girl roots!!! :-)

  9. love the cloches, especially the unusual green ones, i know they are pricy, yours are very cool...check Joannes for those hearts you liked on my post and I will try and remember where I got the white chargers...

  10. Very pretty cloche designs, I like the simplicity of them. I also enjoyed seeing all the outdoor cloches!

    Happy Valentine's Day!


  11. I've only been to Williamsburg once, so I was thrilled with your shots of the gardens. Williamsburg is such a national treasure. Thanks for taking us along. Cherry Kay

  12. I enjoyed each and every cloche! That is the first time I have seen the outdoor ones. Very interesting. blessings ~ tanna

  13. I love the simplicity of a few springs of evergreen and pine cones in a cloche!! And not living where there are Camellias I had no idea there were red ones or even stripped ones. Wow!
