Even as the garden goes to sleep, it still looks amazing

Today’s GPOD is brought to us, once again, by Istvan Dudas of the UK:
“Many of us neglect thinking about the winter interest of the garden because in our perception the garden in winter is dead. This is as far from the truth as it could possibly be. In winter the garden is merely sleeping but can bring about feeling of peace and beauty, like a sleeping child. Winters may be long and cold, but your garden can be transformed in a place of naturally beauty with visually arresting textures, colors, fragrance, and flowers.” 

Here are links to Istvan’s earlier GPODs:
