My Garden in Winter
Winter is an intersting time in the garden. Junipers provide an evergreen backdrop for the skeletal structure of dogwoods. The oaks and maples sway in the winter winds, as do the dried fronds of miscanthus grass.
The early growth of crocus, primula, and daffodil provide hope from the first days of Winter that Spring will come eventually.
The danger of Winter is the catalogs. Sitting in front of a warm fire with a glass of wine, leafing through the White Flower Farm catalog, just a few more plants seem quite reasonable. That feeling will change in Spring when the boxes begin to arrive, each requiring at least unpacking and planting but often necessitating a new bed. I may never learn. I hope not.
