A snow-covered garden is my favorite thing about Winter gardens! There’s already so much Winter interest, and snow is the icing on the proverbial cake!
It there’s one thing better than sharing pictures of Winter interest in the garden — or “Winterest” as The Propagator suggested to me last week — it’s a snow-covered garden!
We finally had a decent snowfall last week, so this is my own theme for my Six on Saturday photos today.
Our front “yard” is actually several garden beds. I love how the largest bed looks in the snow.
Pinky Winky dried flowers
I never trim my Pinky Winky Hydrangeas until the Springtime, and purposely leave the dried flowers to enjoy all Winter. The snow is so pretty on them.
Orange Rocket Barberry
This shrub has year-round interest with the bright red berries on its bare stems in Winter.
Little Bunny Dwarf Fountain Grass
Mother Nature did a great job sprinkling the snow on the Little Bunny Grass. It’s perfect!
Lithodora in Winter
Lithodora is an evergreen perennial with electric blue flowers in the Spring and Summer. I actually like the snow covering these plants, as I think it keeps them protected a bit from freezing temperatures.
Snow-covered garden with color
What I love about this garden bed: the branches of the Red Twig Dogwoods against the snow; the salmon-colored peeling bark of the River Birch; and the snow-covered Limelight Hydrangea dried flowers. There are also several small evergreen shrubs throughout, which makes for a colorful Winter garden bed!
What is Six on Saturday?
The premise is to share six current photos from your garden, with short text to describe each one.
The goal is nothing more than to enjoy seeing everyone’s gardens up close, no matter where in the world you’re located.
To follow along with all of today’s Six on Saturday gardener posts, visit The Propagator here.
You’ll see his six chosen photos, and in the comments section of his blog post you’ll see lots of gardeners — me included — sharing our own links to our chosen photos for the week.
If you love to garden, it’s definitely worth looking at everyone’s photos. Gardeners from all over the world participate!
Another gardener with dogwood! I really, really need one! So beautiful!
Yes, I think everyone needs a red twig dogwood! 🙂 By the way, I love your term “yarden” in your own Six on Saturday post!
Oooh. You’ve got lots of snow in your part of the world. Your garden looks so pretty! Looking forward to ‘getting to know’ you and your garden!
Thanks Sophie! I look forward to the same!
Your plants look stunning against the snow and I like your classic red dogwoods too. I had to look up where you live and see you are in New Jersey. We rarely get this much snow in the south of the England and when we do it only lasts for a day or two before melting.
I wish we got even more snow, but I think it’s because I miss the Winter storms when I lived up in Boston for many years. I’m envious that your Winter color includes flowers this early! If we don’t have snow, then I want to see some blooms! 🙂
I love photos of gardens in the snow – possibly because we don’t get all that much snow down here. It looks especially good on your dried Hydrangea flowers.
Hmm i think have that same berberis. Small now, i only bought it a few months ago. Must plant it out in fact. Lovely snowy pictures.
