The wonderful thing about the starkness of the winter garden is how subtle beauty really comes into focus.
Oftentimes, these moments evade our attention if we don’t slow down, observe quietly, and be present in our gardens. Here we have a dried hydrangea flower that I left for winter interest. The spent flowers are beautiful on their own but casted in delicate ice crystals from early morning freezing fog creates a fleeting moment of elegance.
After a tumultuous year, moments like this are truly a blessing.
May you find wonder-filled presence, renewal and hope in your garden this new year!
Happy 2021 from April and I!
