It’s a bleak time of year. It’s hard to remember that anything will ever grow again at this point in the season.
My vegetable bed still has lots of herbs in it that I can harvest until the snow covers them.
Luckily I still have things like these alpine strawberries all over to remind me of what’s to come next spring.
And these perennials like ajuga, hellebore and even the euonymous hidden under the leaves, will stay evergreen until snow-covered as well.
