The Garden in Winter

Snow blanketing the euonymus, and sugaring the wagon wheel create a pretty picture. 
This vignette is pretty in all seasons!
We always read in gardening magazines that we need to add 'winter interest' to our garden. Sometimes I stare our the sunroom window and try to imagine what I need to add interest to odd corners.

 It doesn't really take much - a bench left out to be covered in snow; shadows created by garden art left out; birds flitting to and fro - to keep your garden interesting and vital all winter long.
This isn't my garden, just a favourite garden of mine!
