In 1999, Jenn and Dan Ferrante acquired a corner lot in the North Portland neighborhood of Overlook. Looking at it today, a charming craftsman home, expertly tended, surrounded by lush gardens and artful details, it’s hard to imagine its humble beginnings. But they bought the house as a fixer-upper, when the exterior spaces were overgrown and unkempt. ..

Included here are some of my favorite photos of winter scenes captured here at Bloomtown, my home garden, over the last couple of weeks. Typical winter weather is comparatively mild here in NE Portland – we usually get a skiff, sometimes more, of snow each year and the periodic ice storm. Below you'll find a couple of overall scenes from my garden showing some of my trees and shrubs bending under the weight of ice and snow. Love the snow, hate the ice. The ice, though beautiful, wreaks horrendous damage on gardens, trees and homes. I'm fortunate, as most seem to be bouncing back and don't appear to have sustained severe, lasting damage. ..

Unless you’re a heckuva lot tougher than me, working outdoors during this time of year has less appeal. However, the snow, ice and inclement weather of the season has a silver lining. Tucked away indoors, insulated from the perpetual pull of garden tasks, I'm free to indulge in guilt-free garden dreaming. It’s a perfect time to settle-in and cozy-up, to revel in the current year's successes, mull over trouble spots, and set my sights on planning for next year's garden. ..

I'll only have few photos to contribute this month, as blooms are pretty spare out in my garden at the moment. Even just a week and half ago my offerings would have been much, much different as we've had a very mild launch into the winter season with temps well above normal so I had quite a few late summer blooms hanging-in here and there. ..

This plant combo will keep 'em humming year-round! The bright and cheery wintertime blooms of Mahonia x 'Charity' (shown above) are a popular nectar source for hungry hummers in winter when it becomes a lively hub of activity, aflutter with chittering birds—situate it outside a window, so that you can enjoy the show. ..

Unsung heroes of the garden, these evergreens are the sturdy yeomen upon which many a garden scene is built. Their contributions are often quite subtle, providing much-needed but easy-to-overlook year-round structure and an all-important frame for other, often more engaging, plant partners that come to the fore during the growing season, with a flurry of color and blooms. ..
