Winter Still

One thing about winter in the garden: there is time to focus on some of the small details of life. There is less busy-ness, less color and matter at hand so you can find yourself looking at a whisp of a hyrdrangea flower in its last stage of being or the seedheads of butterfly bushes that still wave head high in the wind as you might any garden in the riot of spring bloom. In these still moments of winter the delicate beauty of decay and the subtle hues of brown can be enough to contemplate.
