I am excited to share with you the cover of the November/December 2010 issue of Northern Gardener Magazine. This is a publication of the Minnesota State Horticultural Society, and is crammed full of information for those of us living and gardening with the weather extremes in the USDA plant hardy Zones 3, 4, and 5. I am thrilled that they chose one of my photographs for their magazine cover. This image was taken on a morning last February when we awoke to a beautiful coating of hoarfrost covering our trees and plants. The white ice crystals clung to each stem and seedhead, accentuating their beauty and impermanence.
