If I were a painter, this is the time of year that might be my favorite here at the Gardens. Of course, the snow creates gorgeous patterns and forms throughout the Gardens, made even more magical by the holiday lights shining out from under. But on those dry, cool-but-not-cold days that we get plenty of in winter, I would set up my easel and revel in the subtle palette of the darker seasons.

Admire these forms and colors, and you will see beyond the splashy blooms of spring and summer, into another, calmer level of delight.

Gardens not to Miss:

Green Roof, Water Smart, Japanese Garden, Dwarf Conifer Berm
