My Winter Garden

There is beauty in your garden in the winter, you just have to look for it. 

Empty plant urns with a lovely patina
Birdbath disassembled or standing with leaves and water
The beauty of rust, rust can be beautiful!
Dried Rose of Sharon buds

Pumpkins left over from Halloween

Statuary and Sun Dials waiting for Spring
My Yucca covered with rain drops

A lacy, delicate leaf
There is a great deal of beauty in a garden in the winter, the birds that sit in the trees waiting for me to fill the bird feeder, the squirrels that are the tightrope walkers on the fence and telephone lines, the Rosemary that bravely awaits the warming kiss of the sun and much much more. Take a walk through your garden and look for all the things you don't see when the flowers and trees are in full summer dress.
