Winter in the garden in Zone 7 USA (North Carolina)
Posted Dec 04 2011 12:00am
Yes, it does snow in North Carolina! Don't know if you remembered the little garden with the Muhly grass that I posted in the fall, but this is the same scene from another angle in the winter. This is actually taken last year in January but we had a little snow already a few weeks ago, well you might want to call it a dusting, but it was enough to give the little kids enough to make a snowball. The topic of these next few posts is "Winter in the Garden". I'm trying to show what is going on in my garden and will be adding more posts on the topic as ideas come to me. The soltice is approaching and the whole process starts to reverse itself with daylight gradually lasting longer each day. Hope you are enjoying some winter in the garden if you happen to be in the Northern Hemisphere, that is.
