My philosophy on landscape gardening is that there should be visual interest all year long, and not just during the growing season. Because of that, I don't cut alot of my foilage down to the ground in the fall. And also because the birds love to eat the seeds from the dried flower heads and its also less work for me to cut it down in the spring when more than half of the foilage whithered away on its own. LOL!
The first picture is of a creepy, old barn on the other side of my property fence. I just love the way it looks....I love the look of weathered wood, and I'm thrilled I can see it from my yard. But I wouldn't step foot inside this barn in a million years! LOL! I can only imagine whats inside of it! LOL!
Here is a beautiful pine tree whose boughs are heavy with snow.
I have a white picket fence surrounding my whole yard. You don't even want to know how long it took me to paint it! My husband attached some bird houses on the fence for me. Here they are covered with snow and overlooking the woods and river again.
Here is a peek of my garden shed seen through a white pine tree.
This is the front of my shed, which is buried in snow! I can't even get inside of it this time of the year!
Here is a view of a smaller pine. In the distant you can see the rest of my yard. The white house is a neighbor's house.
Just a couple close-ups of some dried up foilage in my winter garden. To the left is blue globe thistle and on the bottom is a aster.
I hope you enjoyed seeing pictures of my yard and garden in winter. My header is also a picture of my garden! When spring comes, I'll be sure to post pictures of all my flowers as they bloom.
Have a wonderful day! Amy
