the winter garden.

The garden takes on a certain beauty in winter.  And winter has definitely struck here in Minnesota.

Ask me about this at the end of March when winter has been dragging on for months and spring still seems far away and I will completely deny it.  But, for now, I think the snow is beautiful.

There is a certain quiet that comes along with winter.  Every sound is muffled by the snow.

In winter, I find it easier to give myself permission to spend an afternoon wrapped in a fluffy blanket watching old movies without feeling guilty about the weeds that are taking over, or the roses that need pruning.  I think having a long winter helps make me a better gardener.  By the time spring rolls around, I’m more than ready to get back at it.  But, for now I enjoy the break from garden tasks and can just enjoy the beauty of winter.
