Winter Doesn't End the Beauty of Your Garden

Some gardeners mourn the end of their growing season when plants die back. Some gardeners work hard in the fall, cleaning out their beds and cutting everything back for tidiness. While there are reasons to cut back some plants, I've come to love my winterscape when things are left as is.

I can't tell you how much I enjoyed this article Jennifer! Despite the fact that I would turn into a popsicle it makes me want to be there to see your landscape in person. Fabulous illustration of the point Jennifer. I love those rocks!!!
I am a strong believer in the simple fact is that what matters in this life is how we treat others. I think that's what living is all about. Not what I've done in my life but how I've treated others.
