Winter planters and gardens

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

This year I’m going to try making some winter planter boxes to put out front of my garage. I use to make live wreaths and arrange planter boxes with my dad when I was a kid and I’m really excited to be able to do this at my house now.
The library has some great books on gardening and winter gardening in particular.
