Winter garden

Here in WI, our gardens tend to become things we dream about - remembering the year past and planning for the new year to come. When it is light for only 9 hours - all of which are spent at work - it makes enjoying a winter garden somewhat difficult.

But once in a while we are offered a chance to escape into the present. On a warmer day over the past weekend, I was able to get out into the garden.

Some leaves remain on the linden, along with seeds and berries for the birds.

I leave the plants in pace in the winter to provide food and shelter
