Winter Gardening

Winter is starting early this year. Even without the blooms and greenery, a covering of snow brings a beauty to gardens and landscapes.

A fluffy snowfall covers the evergreens. Bare branches pop against a snowy background. There are so many interesting forms of branches that just magnetize in winter.

‘Perennial Grasses’ become highlighted features in the landscapes…not to mention how much birds appreciate their seeds.

Berries such as winterberries, hollies and barberries are festive in the snow.

Birdhouses and feeders, arbors, benches, retaining walls and garden art objects look wonderful and interesting with a covering of snow.

Hoar frost on objects sparkle in the crisp winter temperatures.

So while our gardens are still providing us a display of beauty, take the time to enjoy the view while having that cup of steaming hot coffee or grab your camera and go for a winter walk.

Mother Nature does not fail.
