As I walked through the garden this morning under overcast skies that did nothing to warm the 11°F air temperature, I noted all the different ways that the garden catches and holds onto the fallen snow.
Some plants like Hylotelephium and Echinacea collect snow as mounded hats on their dried seed heads.

|Thuga occidentalis 'Emerald Green'|
The dried flower heads of Hydrangea and Miscanthus look especially beautiful interlaced with snow.

|Miscanthus sinensis 'Gracillimus'|
|Hydrangea paniculata 'Pink Diamond'|
|Weigela florida 'Variegata'|
