Today’s photo, our 3th runner-up in the Garden in Winter photo contest, is from finegardening.com member Wife_Mother_Gardener, who says, “When the first snows fall, I grab my camera and capture the first “snow flowers” of the season. This was taken in our front yard near our hill garden. Rosa ‘The Fairy’ astounds us with blooms in our Pennsylvania garden well into November.” So sweet! Wife_Mother_Gardener has a blog! Check it out here, and stay tuned for the 2nd runner-up in tomorrow’s post!
Even while a garden is sleeping, it has joy to share, even though you might have to look a little harder to find it. Back in December, we asked our website visitors to show us the best of their winter gardens in our Garden in Winter photo contest. Since then we’ve received dozens of gorgeous photos. This week we’re featuring the best of the best, leading up to the overall winning photo on Friday. We know you’re winter-weary. Travel along with us this week while we remind ourselves that winter can be a beautiful time in our gardens.
Welcome to the Fine Gardening GARDEN PHOTO OF THE DAY blog! Every weekday we post a new photo of a great garden, a spectacular plant, a stunning plant combination, or any number of other subjects. Think of it as your morning jolt of green.
READER PHOTOS: We love featuring your photos, too. If you think you have a photo that we should share on the Garden Photo of the day, email us. Send hi-res images if possible. We’ll only respond if we plan to use your photo.
