From what I am told, we are having an especially snowy winter this year in South Dakota and Western Iowa. The first snows from early November are still on the ground. Since then, each snow flurry has piled up on it, giving us some pretty high berms! There are several evergreen trees and some shrubs which show through the whitery, but the ornamental grasses look stunning and really give life to an otherwise white and gray landscape. Check out this blog entry:  here. In her photography, the author does an incredible job illustrating how perennials and ornamental grasses can make a landscape in the winter look alive.   My favorite: “Karl Foerster” feather reed grass.
