We had several snow falls this week accompanied by bitter cold. Trips to the compost heap were about all the garden visiting possible until today when the temperatures have risen to around freezing.
The winter garden is shades of sepia and white. The tiny details of old plant stems are outlined in relief against the bright shiny snow. Shadows are a great reason to leave some plant stems standing for the winter. It also shows that animals that you thought were being kept out of the fenced herb garden are freely hopping through the garden. Mr. McGregor would be mad. Spring will be the time to fix the fence not now.
