from Kathy Fink up in Massachusetts. She says, "Snow conditions
near Boston vary from a light garnishing to muffling mounds after a Nor'easter.
Even without snow, there can be a lovely mood with oak branches with clinging
leaves displayed against a glowing winter sky. In early spring, interesting
patterns form as the snow gradually melts. Since the bones of the garden are
more on view with a lovely subtle color scheme, winter is one of my favorite
seasons in my garden."
