Plants & Flowers
Deep cold. Thick ice. A snowstorm to remember. January brings it all. The garden may be covered in snow - which is a good thing.

Snow insulates the roots of plants and keeps them from drying out. A little bit of snow may be an inconvenience, but it's definitely good for the landscape.
