In the Northern hemisphere, winter is quite an amazing natural phenomenon: cold and windy, wet and cloudy. There’s nothing appealing in that, but the real fact is that winter is beautiful for all the people who can actually see it. The reality is that a snowy winter is good for the crops, for the human soul, for birds and so many other things. Not only are pictures of winter landscapes beautiful to behold in their own right, but they can also furnish inspiration as you’re planning your landscaping. It’s especially easy for those landscaping in the country to take their cue from Mother Nature, who finds a way to dazzle our senses even during the bleakest of months in the North.
