I’ll be honest, winter is not my favorite time of year. It’s cold outside and I don’t like being cold. I love spending time in the garden every day and honestly, there’s not much for me to do in winter. But just because I’m inside doesn’t mean there isn’t a lot going on outside! Since I don’t do a big fall garden clean-up birds, pollinators and other wildlife are able to live and thrive in my garden throughout the frigid winter months. Although my garden is rather untidy at the moment, I bet you’ll agree that it’s still beautiful and full of winter interest.
Is it winter right now where you live? What perennial plants did you leave untouched to provide shelter and food for wildlife?
