Garden Photo of the Day

What’s Under Your Snow?

Batya Gorin has the right idea – pour over photos photos of your garden until the snow melts! How do you get through the winter?

"This is  from my garden in Mamaroneck, NY this past year.   Hard to believe it's hiding there under the snow.  
Can't wait for Spring."

    Batya: Love your shade gardens, especially the 2 nd photo with a great combination of plants which really show off the use of texture. Love the hellebores in the foreground. They look good all year. The combination of hosts, polygonatum and ferns (with Brunnera on the other side) are beautiful as well. Great garden.

      Thanks. Not hellebores in that location, though. There are 2 Pieris shrubs there, not very big yet.

        Thanks for the correction. I first saw your post on my iPhone. My eyes are showing signs of aging.

    Hi, Batya. Yes, indeed, you do have lots of goodies tucked away under your current snow cover. It's so nice to have all those wonderful pictures to keep the memories fresh about how beautiful everything is going to look in the months to come. Looks like you have a very nice balance of shady and sunny areas to enjoy gardening in. Do you have any one particular plant that you are dreaming about that is on your "must buy" list for 2016?

    1. batyagorin 01/29/2016

      There is never just one plant.

        Ah, yes, that is how it is for most of us who are addicted to gardening!

    Pictures are wonderful to have to get through the winter with! Dosent gardening bring hope in our lives? Yours is to dream about for sure! I enjoyed seeing all the green and different textures! I can hardly wait for spring too! Thanks Batya for sharing with us what is under your snow!

    I love all the shapes in the last two pictures - what a fascinating way they interplay with each other. Thanks for sharing such lovely remembrances of summer! We all need them.

    Looks great, Batya. Love your shade garden. It's wonderful how the silver of the Brunnera echoes the dusty blue of the Fothergilla in photo 3, in addition to the silver painted fern and Eryngium. I was wondering about the glossy leaves in the foreground and to the right in photo 2. I think that is what Kevin is referring to in his comment as hellebores, but it looks like a shrub to me. Pieris? Think Spring!

    1. batyagorin 01/29/2016

      yes, the glossy leaves are pieris.

    Especially love your shade garden with the path through it! Wonderful collection/display of plants! And I haven't grown any "sea holly" yet but it seems to have extra appeal to me after seeing it in your photo. Thanks for sharing!

    Great use of color and texture. Love it!

    Lovely, Batya! I really like the combination of the brunnera and fothergilla--is it Blue Shadow? I have two and love them, especially in autumn. Thanks for giving us a glimpse!

    1. batyagorin 02/04/2016

      Sorry for slow reply. Blue Shadow is correct.

    Hi Batya, though late to the party, I just wanted to say I love your shade gardens and your sunny garden too. I too wondered about the glossy leaves so Pieris. Very sophisticated plant palette.
