The ice garden is beautiful, but just let it be

As photographer I can't resist shooting the garden covered in ice. It only happens once or twice during the winter. The coated plants are beautiful. Gardeners worry though when their treasured shrubs and trees bend close to the ground under the weight of the ice. Just leave them alone and wait for a thaw, you could do more damage by trying to get free the branches from winter's grip. The plants have experienced this before and will stand straight again.

Sit back, dream of spring and enjoy the unique spectacle provided by a garden of ice.
