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.

|Thanks for sharing your winter garden in a well done photo article.|
It is a beautiful garden even in winter.
And by not destroying it by "clean up" in fall,
you are providing winter homes for beneficial insects.
I once found a lady bug curled up inside a Lavatera seed case.

|You see a winter garden like I do. Your's is beautiful. I have enjoyed my somewhat shaggy garden during many winters. I always leave the old stems until spring. |
Of all the things I've lost, I miss my mind the most.
