Two Spots of Winter Color in the Snow




The Euonymous Wintercreeper bush above has kept its yellow-green leaves through the freezing temps and snow. It's labeled for zones 5-8.




The red berries of the Rockspray Cotoneaster have survived the winter and the birds, who also use the birdfeeders in the backyard and in the neighborhood to get food in winter.

No other bush or tree in the backyard have color, other than brown/black and white, and the dark green leaves of hardy rosebushes.

The pictures are foggy because of the weather and because i took them from inside the house,looking out through a glazed window!

Why of course I'd come for a visit! Thank you for stopping by the Cottage on the Corner. Aren't cotoneaster great for winter color? Same with the euonymous, which I had both on the farm I lived. I'm delighted to discover another Ohio garden blogger! I'll be checking out your other blogs, too.
