In 115 years Minneapolis has had a white Christmas 72% of the time. I guess we had to hit one brown Christmas after living here for seven years. With green lawns and nasty sleet pelting down it was a strange looking holiday. Never fear, two days later just in time for travel, a fluffy snow fell silently in the night.
Winter interest in the northern garden is an elusive animal, there for a moment and then covered in white. Snow can define, outline and decorate, bringing out the best of the "bones" in your garden. Or it hides a multitude of gardening sins and mishaps.
Do you have winter interest where you live?
