Baby it's Cold Outside! Winter is the perfect time to be planning for spring gardening, but also gathering ideas for your winter garden. As you are driving through your neighborhood, observe landscapes, taking note of plants that stand out. Look for interesting bark, berries and evergreen foliage. Evergreen leaf texture and shape helps define a winter garden, as does the architecture of deciduous shrubs and trees. A well balanced garden design will always take winter interest into consideration.
