A beautiful winter day!

Winter cold can be really devastating to a garden, but up north snow in moderation is a gardener's best friend. It keeps things nice and fresh and looks so beautiful. Here are a few pics! 

Crape Myrtle and Spanish Moss

Crape Myrtles are beautiful year round. Their seed pods add a lot of winter interest.

A walk down the block

My Cordyline Australis looking a little bent up from the snow. Don't worry it bounced right back when the snow melted!

My Southern Magnolia 

Daphniphyllum macropodum is commonly called "Rednecked Rhododendron" and I think you can see why. A beautiful broadleafed evergreen that sailed through this past winter. 

Eastern Prickly Pear

My Y. gigantea out for some air.

Mahonia holding onto some flower buds.

The scene is much nicer indoors where it's warm!

Out of nowhere the sun came out and it went from gray to blue very quickly!

Snow looks so much more beautiful during sunny skies.

I decided to go for a walk into the forest

 And WOW was it beautiful! 


Back in Warmer Days 

Maybe you remember this scene from the summer? Quite a contrast but both very beautiful in their own way! 



Beautiful day in the snow. Thanks for looking!
