As we speak we’re visiting Robin Hess’s backyard.
I got down to attempt to discover some winter curiosity in my New Hampshire backyard. There isn’t any vibrant coloration right here in January, however we had snow a number of days in the past and I assumed some close-ups may encourage gardeners to search for the winter magnificence of their gardens.
An azalea (Rhododendron hybrid, Zones 5–10) is dusted with snow, and the leaves have flushed pink in response to the chilly.
A hemlock (Tsuga canadensis, Zones 3–7) twig is fantastically adorned with ice.
A frog statue is all wrapped up in snow.
The massive bud on the finish of the stem of a hydrangea (Hydrangea macrophylla, Zones 5–9) accommodates the flowers for early subsequent summer time. To keep away from chopping off the flowers, you shouldn’t prune hydrangeas this time of 12 months.
A Thuja (Zones 2–7) department dusted with snow
Taking time to look shut reveals the wonder even in a merely light leaf.
