January Garden/ Nature Notes

A taste of my gardens in January

True, nothing is flowering but that doesn't mean my gardens are bare this time of year. Starting with the largest square and moving clockwise: seed pods of leopard plant (Ligularia), snow-covered wall at front of house, seed pods of purple coneflower (Echinacea), ornamental grass (Miscanthus). Rugosa rose hips and turtlehead (Chelone)

I do so like this montage of the nature's sculptures in winter. Ideal for Mosaic Monday as well.

Doesn't matter that they are no longer in full bloom. They are beautiful this way too.

There is beauty in every season, but I do miss the colors of summer!

Such a pretty mosaic. Looks like you will have plenty of seeds for the spring. Can't wait to see these plants then.

Each has a beauty of its own and is arranged fabulously in a frame. This is a lovely art.

Getting near the end of January.... only 2 more months to go and then we might possibly see a bit of green emerging from the gray and white! Winter has it's own special beauty, but does it really have to last so long?????

Tanya said...

The snow makes your "winter garden" just beautiful!

Lovely collage!

George said...

Your garden does look good in the snow, especially when the snow is fresh and clean as it is on your wall. When it gets dirty like it now is here it doesn't look so good.

Jack said...

You have good reason to be proud of your garden.

Carver said...

I love the way gardens look in the winter when snow sits on top of seed heads and such. Your garden looks very beautiful.

Jacob said...

I would have probably looked out at your gardens and seen only the snow. Sort of like you looking at the Ocala DP picture today. Heh, heh!
