I didn’t have time to complete the winter theme for the deck containers. However, it’s amazing what a little “snow enhancement” does to an incomplete arrangement of rhododendron, winterberry, and magnolia branches. I had planned to gather some white pine and spruce to fill and finish the winter design. But alas….didn’t get done. Thank heavens for a little ‘Solstice’ snow dusting. Mother Nature finished it just fine for the approaching holidays. Behind the containers you see the woody winter form of the vine clematis montana grandiflora alba climbing on the deck railing.
