Most of my garden stands during winter, for good practical reasons. It's healthier for the plants because the decaying stems and foliage as well as fallen leaves from the trees all protect the crown of the plant from excess moisture in winter. Wildlife finds a standing winter garden more sustaining and habitable.
But most of all, my garden is still standing because it fills me with awe, even while sleeping.
