So, what’s the takeaway here? Well, I think is definitely one: that the beauty of nature endures no matter what season it happens to be. It simply adapts to new conditions. As a result, that’s a new kind of beauty that is pretty easy to appreciate.

And it also means that you don’t have to abandon your garden when it starts to snow. In fact, with the right species of plant, your garden can take on a new identity as things get colder. It’s just a question of choosing the right ones, and knowing what it takes to help them thrive.
