Thankfully we have migrated to more normal temperatures here in the Pacific northwest and away from the frigid weather we experienced several weeks ago; however, that unexpected cold gave us many photographic opportunities in the garden.

This is my entry for Gardening Gone Wild’s Picture This photo contest for January 2010. The first judge of the year is Alan Detrick, and he has selected WINTER’S BEAUTY as the theme. Alan writes that although it is winter, there are still unexpected garden gifts.
