The Winter Garden

From the window the garden looks bare but there is beauty to be found. Now covered by thick snow, the garden contains seemingly uninteresting remnants of once lush flowering plants. Under close inspection in the bright sunlight, these remnants show a fascinating display of seeds and seed pods.

Take a look at some of the plants I found in the garden. It can be  difficult to tell what they are at this time of the year, especially with very little left of the plant. Can you identify them? Perhaps you have these in your garden.
