biped...."The winter garden can be quite drab and boring, but with a little imagination you can easily turn a three season yard into a four season one."
biped...."We are't there yet, but we've started. We're really lucky because we live about ten miles from the state Nursery where they grow all kinds of trees and shrubs. The first year that we were here I ordered $52.00 worth of trees. Didn't sound like much till April rolled around and we got our call to pick up our trees and shrubs. This guy below is one of them. It's a red barked dogwood. So even when there's no leaves there is still color in the yard."
biped...."The plant shown next is called a Winter Berry. After the leaves fall off a mauve colored berry is left. (I have no clue why these look red). I planted a whole bunch of these only to discover that if I went out into our woods that there were oodles of them out there planted by mother nature. Ooops, did I mention that there were 135 trees and shrubs for me to pick up that April?"
biped....."The plant shown below is another one of my favorites. I suspect that it won't grow here because of the extreme cold and because it originated in Florida but it's still neat. It's called a Snow Berry. It has little fruits that look like popcorn which last all winter long."
Heesh...."We wants to thank our new friends Hendrix and Joplin for the neat award dey gave us. Of course we're going to have to work on da biped cuz she isn't following da rules."
