Peaceful winter garden on Mercer Island

In the middle of winter when many gardens are brown and lifeless, it’s nice to see a garden  full of color, texture and life.

The pink flowers of the hellebore and daphne are a perfect match.

A purple bench is unexpected in this woodland setting.

The mossy basin rock attracts birds and is a winter focal point.

Mahonia is a great structural plant and the yellow blooms are a winter bonus.

Evergreen ferns, grasses and hellebores brighten the gray winter days.
