Phipps in the Winter

Camera: Konica Minolta DiMAGE Z3.

One of the great challenges of landscape design is to find some way to make the landscape interesting in the winter, when deciduous leaves are gone and there are almost no flowers. Bright red berries certainly add a lot of winter interest, as we see above.

In the picture below, the tree with the very interesting skeleton is a Dawn Redwood (Metasequoia glyptostroboides), a conifer that loses its leaves in winter.

 Camera: Kodak EasyShare Z1485 IS.
