Winter's Subtle Beauty
by Jonah Holland, PR & Marketing Coordinator, Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden
This time of year you have to look a little bit harder to find the beauty of nature especially on cold rainy days like today. This morning I found a subtle rainbow of colors in the bark of the Chamaecyparis obtusa. The red and green leaves of the oakleaf hydrangea were made even more interesting in contrast to the gray weather. Winter woodland textures provided a nice vista anchored by the Lace House.
