We were really fortunate to get our burn of the Sporobolus heterolepis done earlier in the week when we had a window of dry, calm weather. This is done to mimic natural rejuvenation systems in their native prairie habitats.
Before: creating burn buffer around woody plants
After: charred remains under blanket of snow
A few scenes from our latest (and hopefully last) snowfall:
Looking up towards the house from below the ponds
Persisting leaves of American Beech (Fagus grandifolia)
Snow-capped Hamamelis mollis 'Early Bright'
I will say although I'm ready for Spring, it's always special to experience the garden after a fresh snow. Friday was no exception- it was quite peaceful to walk around in the stillness and serenity after work.
