we’ve had no heavy snow yet here in the north. that means all the garden plants are still standing upright with leaves mostly in tact. i love a winter garden as much, maybe even more than, a summer garden. my favorite part of these gardens are the numerous and varied seed heads. this weekend, take a walk and look closely at the winter gardens. without all the gaudy colors of summer blooms to distract the eye, you’ll see gorgeous structure, volume, geometry and ingenuity. yes, i said gaudy. and i am sticking with it.
happy thanksgiving to all my american friends. wishing you all a weekend that recharges your batteries–whether that is loud family gatherings or quiet nights in front of the fire. i plan to do a little of both.
