Winter Garden

A framed photo of a single dried and frosty coneflower stands bravely against the elements of winter.
The winter garden is monochromatic unlike the chaotic cacophony of color in the summer garden. A frosted leaf or branch becomes the focal point, etching an abstract pattern against a cedar wall. A single dried flower against a backdrop of white invites one to look closer to see the abstract beauty of a seed. Have you been to a winter garden? What have you seen?

  1. That first photo is amazing, Julie. Simple, begging to be looked at, perused, studied, appreciated. I've enjoyed seeing ice on our lakes and rivers this year. That's rare for my neck of the woods and it's been amazing to see.

  5. You're so right. Winter is a special season with textures and calm, simple color palettes. I love the trees outside my window in all seasons but in winter they are stark and black--and beg my camera to capture them in their slumber.
