A glimpse of a Southern winter garden snow day.
We had a light dusting of snow while those above us up North experienced the sky falling with snow.
Yes, this is one of our pumpkins from October!
I leave all pumpkins in the garden to decompose then anticipate lots of surprises appear in August.
The Lenten rose makes a delightful cut flower- alone or with roses, hydrangeas – this is a beauty.
There are many varieties of Lenten rose and now is time to plant if you can find transplants to purchase or a friend to
share her babies with you!
Another stunner in the winter garden-Camellia japonica

Even the grown up garden needs a little whimsy.
Contorted, cock-eyed Harry Lauder’s walking stick adds a little giggle to the stately Camellias pictured above.
The walking stick makes a statement when snuggled up amongst a bunch of girly hydrangeas in floral designs.
We have the strangest weather here in Augusta. One day snow, next day upper 70’s.
Thought I would capture the loveliness of a Southern winter snow day in the garden before it is gone.
