Borrowed View: Snow-Covered Linden Trees At Night - January 2024
One evening, I peeked out at the backyard and noticed this combo view (part ours, part borrowed) of two different Linden trees. Ours is a Greenspire Linden that is trained into a horizontal cordon espalier; backed by our cedar fence. And just behind and lit-from-below is our neighbors (unknown variety) of a Linden Tree that is covered in the day's snow. Quite a look isn't it? I posted about "Winter Interest" just a few days ago and mentioned that perhaps as a result of lacking conifers, the majority of the "winter interest" in our garden is from snow + structure. Here...just add "light". And you have a little bit of winter garden magic.
