winter trees

Oh, what a goodly and a glorious show;
The stately trees have decked themselves with white,
And stand transfigured in a robe of light;
Wearing for each lost leaf a flake of snow.

–Richard Wilton (1827–1903)

Feeding Garden Birds in Winter
Birds are an essential part of the garden, helping with pest control as they snap up aphids, caterpillars, grubs and other insect pests. But in the winter food can be scarce. Regular feeding will encourage birds to keep coming back to your garden, so they’ll be around during the growing season to help keep pests in check.
