The hydrangeas have long since faded and dried, but I like to leave them over the winter because of the lovely snow-laden look about them.
Lucky to have several garden obelisks around the property, (with a big thanks to my handy hubby), they support all kinds of things I like to grow from spring to fall, including peas, runner beans, clematis, and morning glory.
These sturdy stands offer much winter interest this time of year! Sculptures that hold the snow, and my attention.
There are lots of berries still on trees. Food for the birds, but also a bright red colour that’s in such contrast to what can otherwise be a very monochromatic season.
And, not unlike this geranium by the kitchen window, (which blooms several times over the winter for me, inside of course!), I’ll (try to) patiently wait for the next time I can be outside again, basking in the warm sunshine flooding the garden.
With the equinox and winter solstice this coming weekend, the days will once again grow longer. It’ll be good to be back on the right track! Happy Solstice to all. ~ Karen
