The beauty of this winter garden is obvious–and it’s also obvious that I am not in Connecticut.
I took this tramping around in the Betty Ford Alpine Garden in Vail. This shows that a garden can be truly lovely in any season.

A bridge in the “alpine” section of the garden. while the whole garden is designated as such because of the altitude and climate, this portion is dedication to growing alpine plants. The Spoiler and I were at dedication of this section when it opened in the early 2000s–2004, maybe? The Fords (Gerald and Betty) were in attendance. The Spoiler met them. I don’t really care much for that sort of thing so I didn’t.
