You may think gardens are sound asleep this season, but here are some examples of how the winter garden can be layered with intrigue and vitality throughout the colder months… We choose evergreens, but we also consider the bark and branching structure of trees and shrubs. The seed heads of many perennials are as beautiful as their past flowers. Colors are heightened by a glaze of ice. Ornamental grasses bleached blond and dusted with snow are lovely. The winter garden is quiet and contemplative…a peaceful space.
